Dear Mrs Redgrave.

I am writing on behalf of my squadron and myself to express to you our most sincere sympathy on the loss of your husband.

You will already have recieved [sic] the notification of his death and I understand that you wish to have a service funeral here.

I am not allowed at present, for obvious reasons, to give you full details as to how he met his end. But I can say that it was instantaneous and that it occured [sic] whilst flying in action against the enemy.

If there is any further information that you would like, or if I can be of any assistance at any time, please write to me at the above adress [sic]

In conclusion, I would like once more to express my deepest sympathy. Your husband had not been with us for long, but I was very impressed by his Quiet and efficient manner. His loss is one that can be ill afforded by the service and the country.

Yours Sincerely,

[underlined] N C Hyde [/underlined]
Wing Commander
