Dear Skipper.
I am most sorry to convey the sad news that my husband “Victor Waterhouse”. F/O. 149100. is reported missing from 1-2 Jan.
Will you let me know his chance of making a landing. I will appreciate your help in obtaining any news of him.
We have two children, Victor aged 16 months and Pauline six weeks old.
I can only hope and trust in God that he has made a safe landing somewhere.
I shall be most grateful for any help I receive from you.
Kindest Regards.
[underline] Lee Waterhouse [/underline]
