Nr. Dereham,
Norfolk.
8th March 1945.
Dear
This is just to thank you very much indeed for the great kindness and hospitality shown by you and your station to Flight Lieutenant Morley and his crew when they were diverted to you last Sunday.
They tell me that everything possible was done for them; it really was most kind of you. They have,
been so full of the good time they had that I am afraid you will have the whole squadron diverting themselves to Nuthampstead on the slightest excuse.
Yours
DWD

Colonel Rooney,
603 Squadron,
U.S. Army Air Corps,
Nuthampstead,
Cambridgeshire.
