Civil War: Politics after October
[On 27 November] the staff was set up in the premises occupied by the Helsingfors [sic] sailors (2nd Baltic Fleet Depot), from which orders for the destruction of liquor would be issued. Machine-gunners were summoned from Strel’na, and Helsingfors sailors were put on duty. Then the silver of Countess Bobrinskaia, 54 Galernaia [St], was removed to the State Bank; it had begun to be looted and was protected by the sailors. The liquor in this house had been destroyed earlier by the sailors before my assignment.
