Dear Mrs Madgett
I have recd a letter from Rev S. Wall (C of E Chaplain, Chester), asking me to make enquiries about
your son & his crew, posted missing in August, I went to see the Adjutant 61 Sqd, & he informed me
that owing to “security” reasons he was unable to give me the address of the crew or their relatives.
The crew too are “missing'. So I am very sorry that I am unable to furnish any information. The
Adjutant told me that there is still a chance that they may be prisoners of war, but that information
takes a long time to get through. I hope that will prove to be the case with your son.

I am
Yours Sincerely
C. Bourchier
Officiating Chaplain, C of E
Syerston [underlined] Aerodrome [/underlined]
