"LADY'S NARROW ESCAPE" in the Scarborough Mercury 24th December. A story from the German bombardment of Scarborough
An employee of the Tramway Company relates the narrow escape of a lady, Mrs Coleman, of 13, York-place, in Falconer's-road. She was in the street, and shells were bursting on several buildings near by. "For God's sake," she said, "get me somewhere, I have an invalided father." The man escorted her through a passage behind York-place, and fortunately so, for no sooner had they reached the shelter of the passage when a shell struck a house, and a great shower of masonry and debris feel on the roadway where Mrs Coleman was standing a few seconds before.
