Madam,
[underlined] 658930. Sergeant A. BAIN. [/underlined]

I have to refer with regret to the fact that your husband has been officially promulgated as missing on 23rd August, 1943, and in the circumstances you will wish to be informed to what allowances you are entitled under Air Ministry regulations.

The records of this Department show that you are in receipt of family allowance and allotments totalling 84s. 6d per week, and this rate of payment will be continued by means of your present order book up to and including order number 41 for week due for payment on 16th December, 1943. If your husband is still missing after that week payment may continue for a further period of nine weeks unless in the meantime further information regarding him is received, when you will be notified of any amendment which may in consequence be necessary.

/Any

Mrs. J. D. Bain, 25, Beaufort Gardens, Bishopbriggs, Glasgow.

[page break]

Any continuing allowance which may be due to you subsequently will be at the rate of pension which would be payable if a fatal casualty had been reported, and in order that this may be determined, I am to request that you will complete the enclosed form at your early convenience and return it to this Department in the envelope provided.

Regarding your application for Pre-natal allowance see the enclosed Form 240.

I am, Madam,
Your obedient Servant,
J Timpson
For Director of Accounts.
