THE COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL FOR GIRLS,
ALTRINGHAM,
CHESHIRE.
June 2nd 1943.
Dear Mr. Chadwick,
I was delighted to hear in the News to-day that you have been honoured by the King for your services as an aeroplane designer. We clapped you at School Assembly to-day and feel very proud of having a “father” who has done such distinguished service to our Country.
I send you the congratulations of the School and would send you a telegram of congratulations, but I believe that is not a truly patriotic thing to do!
With kind regards,
Yours sincerely,
D.M. Douglas.
