Re: [Bann Valley] sus - OAP records

Thanks for re-posting this Richard. It is heartbreaking to think of what we
would know if these records survived. I read recently that one batch of
records was pulped in error, the Irish civil service wrote to London asking
what should be done and the English counterpart replied to destroy them,
but what neither made clear to the other was that the English had two
copies of the returns but thrrr was only one in Ireland
