Nr Wakefield
Oct. 19. 1943.
Dear Mrs Milling,
You have often been in our thoughts since we received the terrible news that our dear boys were missing. I do hope that you and your baby are as well as on can expect under the circumstances and that your baby will be a great comfort to you.
Your husband (Ted) was such a grand happy fellow and was so proud of you and his baby. All the members of the crew have visited us here at our home in Lofthouse along with our son Kenneth who was Air bomber. They were the grandest set of fellows I have had the pleasure of meeting and they each had such great confidence in the capabilities of the others. I do hope that we shall soon have some good news of them all, as both my Carl and I are convinced they are safe somewhere.
Should you receive any news Mrs Milling, will you kindly let me know? And I will communicate with you immediately I should get any.
My Carl joins me in sending our very best wishes
Very sincerely yours
Mary & Carl
