The principal officers appear to be listed for each address but there is no overall employee list for any of the addresses (which wasn't really the role of the Directory) and given that unless you made it to the top in the Civil Service you were basically anonymous, especially to the hierarchy

The different offices appear to have had different purposes - do you know your fathers role in the Revenue ?
George street is listed as a Collection Office while the others in the 41/42 listing appear to be administration. Mitchell Street is cited as the Head Office while Wellington Street and Sauchiehall Street are linked with Dunbartonshire and Rutherglen.

Many of these office blocks are still standing and can be seen in Googles Street View

Presumably the employees signed the Official Secrets Act & had some anonymity!

Skoosh.

I believe he was a Deputy Collector of Taxes when he was when he was transferred to Dumfries in 1946.
