Mechanically-inclined Sergeant Mallory was the pride of his hometown of Woodsville, Maine. The tiny coastal village loved and supported its sons who were called to serve overseas in the Second World War. Sheriff Pillsbury invited a traveling government surveyor to spend a night in the Mallory family home, and showed off the two-way radio that had been Mallory’s prewar obsession and industry. When the surveyor insisted
the radio was a security threat to the United States’ East Coast and had to be destroyed,
Pillsbury was tasked to break the news to Mr. and Mrs. Mallory.
