I would like to mention a couple fo sad incidents which happened when I was a messenger boy at Smethwick P.o.
While working at Rolfe Street P.O. Smethwick in 1947-48 as a cyclist messenger Ted Edwards fell off the Smethwick Post Office roof breaking both His legs
Another incident which I thought was worst was when on the motor bikes at Hockley Post Office Birmingham my friend Arthur Hynes was killed at an accident on the Bearwood Road . He was a messenger at Rolfe Street P.O.The saturday previous we had been to St Andrews to see the Blues (Birmingham City ) playing Leicester City
