Site Updates: Features and photographs of the 1935 Quetta Earthquake

Resources section

I've added an index page under the Resources section of the website dedicated to Harvey's grandparents, Air Commodore Cyril Norman Ellen D.F.C and Gladys Lily Ellen (nee Gardner). I'll be adding further articles and photographs to this section as time permits but, to get started, I've published a page about the Quetta Earthquake in 1935.

Cyril was the Squadron Leader of No. 5 (AC) Squadron which was based at Quetta when the disaster struck and Gladys was awarded the Kaisar-i-Hind Silver Medal for her part in the rescue effort. The page includes an excerpt from the RAF Operations Books giving an account of the earthquake. It shows what the people went through and speaks of the incredible devastation caused by the catastrophe.
