Officers Mess,
R.A.F. Station,
LYNEHAM.
15th January 1945.

Sir,
Herewith amended account with apologies. It appears that the confusion had arisen partly from the lack of information regarding your movements, but you will see that the account overleaf has been amended, so that you were in mess three days only. There has been a credit of Mess Subscriptions & Messing charges, together with refund of R.A.F.B.F. which should have been collected by the hospital.
Trust that this will now meet with your approval.
With best wishes for a speedy recovery,
[signature] Sergeant.
P.M.C. Office [deleted] rs [/deleted]
