Dear Mrs Madgett.
Helen and I were quite excited this morning when we read in the ‘Kentish Mercury’ of the well deserved honour bestowed on Hedley. I am sure Mr Madgett and yourself must be very proud of your brave son and we congratulate both Hedley and you most sincerely.
I saw Mrs Parkin last week, and she was telling me how well Hedley was doing and that he was a born airman. May he be kept safe!You must have many an anxious moment about him.
[page break]
I hope Peter won’t have to go. The war certainly looks as if it might end sooner than we think.
Hearty congratulations and best wishes & good luck to Hedley in his future operations.
I am,
Yours sincerely,
J.G. Grey

P.S. Mrs Parkins has just rung up to say that Hedley is missing. I am [underlined] so [/underlined] sorry, and do hope that you will have some good news soon. J.G.G.
