My Dear Leonard,

Just a line to congratulate you most heartily on your very well earned V.C. It was a mighty fine effort and has received universal praise, more it is a great Show for G17.

I didn’t know whether this will ever get you but don’t reply anyway as you will get a lot of these.

See you out there.
Yours Ever.
[underlined] Guy Gibson [/underlined]
