Description

A telegram sent from Rear Admiral W.B. Young to the men and women of the Sidney Blumenthal Company in September of 1943. Young was the Chief of the Bureau of Supplies and Accounts for the United States Navy. This telegram was sent to inform and thank textile mill staff, as a fabric they produced -- "alpaca pile fabrics used in jungle cloth special winter clothing" -- was credited with likely saving the lives of servicemen following a ship wreck. This telegram was bound within a collection of the Caromount News, a newspaper written by the staff of Caromount Mills in Rocky Mount (N.C.) and sent to the men and women deployed during World War II.
