Dear Mrs. Bain,

We know that the Air Ministry has written to you to convey the sad particulars of the burial of your husband Sergeant A. Bain No. 658930. As this information has been sent to a different address from that which we have always used in our correspondence with you, we feel we should perhaps write to you also and trust you will therefore forgive any possible duplication.

We are informed by the by the International Red Cross Committee that your husband was buried in the Garrison Cemetery at Doberitz, near Berlin, Germany. The number of his grave is 1 in Row 11 Kg. V.

[Page Break]

Please accept our deep sympathy in the great loss you have sustained and the renewed sorrow which this grievous news must bring to you.

Yours sincerely,
Margaret Ampthill
Chairman.
Hsh

Mrs. Bain,
25, Beaufort Gardens,
Bishopsbriggs,
Glasgow.
