“Could I have at least 30 extra police from some unaffected County”: 2.55pm

Telephone message received from the RIC Depot at 2.55pm on 28/4/16

County Inspector asks me to give the following message to Sir Neville Chamberlain. Have received report of an apprehended attack on Barrow Bridge and trouble in Wexford. No military here. Most desirable that a detachment be sent. Could I have at least 30 extra police from some unaffected County as although at present quiet the situation here is threatening. I have reinforced Barrow Bridge as far as possible.

Ends.
