Gun dis­play com­plaint

Loughborough Echo - - LOOKING BACK -

THE Echo re­ceived a let­ter from a res­i­dent who was sad­dened to see a win­dow dis­play in a lo­cal toy shop en­cour­ag­ing par­ents to buy ma­chine guns, bren guns, grenades and weapons of war as Christ­mas presents for chil­dren.

The let­ter from Ivy Stra­chan said: “With so many peo­ple suf­fer­ing in the war it ap­palls me to think that we here cel­e­brate the birth of Christ by giv­ing these hor­ri­ble repli­cas of war weapons to out chil­dren.”
