Tribute of the General Manager

Tribute of the General Manager.

Here is the tribute of Mr. G. H. Mackley, General Manager of Railways:—

“In the untimely death of Stanley Davis, the Railways Department has lost an officer who was as faithful as he was efficient. Indeed, the passing of such a gifted artist is a loss to the whole country. He was remarkable for his keen cheerful zest in his tasks. He never looked upon his daily round of duty as one of mere routine. He had an untiring eagerness to put distinctiveness into ordinary things. He never swerved from his conscientious spirit of service. Truly he was a man who lived for his work. I feel that my deep regret at his death is shared by the whole of the railway service. Our heartfelt sympathy is given to Mrs. Davis and relatives.”

The late Mr. Stanley Davis.
