AIR MINISTRY,
(Casualty branch),
73-77, OXFORD STREET, W.1.
27th April, 1944.

Dear Madam,
I am directed to refer to a letter from this Department dated the 30th January, 1944, and to inform you with regret that a further report has now been received from the International Red Cross Committee which unhappily confirms that your husband, Pilot Officer Robert Stott, D.F.M., Royal Air Force, lost his life on the 26th November, 1943, and adds that he was buried three days later in Grave No. 355 in the cemetery at St. Trond, Belgium.

Four other members of the crew are buried in neighbouring graves.

In order that the Department may be in a position to close your husband’s service estate, action to presume his death, for official purposes, will now proceed and you will be informed when this is completed.

In conveying this information, I am to express the deep sympathy of the Department with you in your bereavement.

I am, Madam,
Your obedient servant,
Sgd. E. Cowan.
for Director of Personal Services.

Mrs R. Stott,
174, High Street,
Musselburgh,
Midlothian
