An article entitled "Bombardment heard at Malton" in the "Scarborough Mercury." The big guns from the German bombardment of Scarborough were heard 22 miles away in Malton
Although Scarborough is 22 miles off the coast, the bombardment of Scarborough was plainly heard there about 8.20 on Wednesday morning, the frequent booming being accompanied by the rattling of windows and doors.
A large number of Scarborough refugees arrived in Malton, and their first cry was for clothes and food. Mrs G.H. Stephenson, the wife of the Malton stationmaster, rendered kindly assistance, and later the parties were taken to the Malton Parish Hall, where a number of ladies under Mrs A.L. Russell wife of the chairman of the Malton Urban Council, attended to the comforts, and found quarters for them.
