What Our Readers Think (To the Editor.) HINDMARSH FIRE BRIGADE [Newspaper Article] — News — 6 August 1923
What Our Readers Think (To the Editor.) HINDMARSH FIRE BRIGADE Mr. H. T. Sayers:-May I be permit ted space, to comment on an article ap pearing in 'The News" of July 28 under thile title of "Fire and Accidents," deal ing with the work of the Hindmarsh Volunteer Fire Brigade and Ambulance Corps?' Being an advocate of regularly paid public service, I wish to deal only with the fire brigade section, as it appears tlhat the driver of the ambulance is a paid servant.
