Hi Everyone - at least those who have their curiosity piqued by the title of this topic.
In the early 1980's I can remember Jack Cook - then Head of Area Operations Birmingham - showing me a big thick ledger containing all the names of wags employed in Birmingham from 1901 to 1980. After Jack retired the ledger [and some photographs] went walkabout. I seem to remember Barry Coopers name being mentioned and also Denis Knights, but when ever I tried to raise the subject with anyone all I got was vague responses or blanks looks. The ledger forms a very important part of the history of Telegram Boys/Messengers/Junior Postmen in Birmingham, as it shows date of commencement and progression to being a Postman. From memory it also shows those former wags Killed in Action WW I [don't think there was any Killed in Action WW II] and also those who died in accidents or while on duty.
IF ANYONE KNOWS WHERE OR WHO HAS THE LEDGER - and photos -PLEASE LET EITHER ME OR ROGER GREEN KNOW Thank you
