HC Deb 16 June 1942 vol 380 c1362
15. Mr. Woodburn

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that communications to verify lists of next-of-kin are marked "War Office Casualty Branch" and that the receipt of this communication has caused shock and alarm to relatives; and whether he will have the particular branch renamed or, alternatively, have the returns made to an address free from the inferences of the present practice?

Sir J. Grigg

In order to avoid any possibility of such misunderstandings, I have given instructions that on the outside of communications of this nature all reference to the Casualty Branch shall in future be omitted.
