Sir,
With reference to the letter from this department dated the 6th January 1944, I am directed to inform you, with great regret, that in view of the lapse of time and the absence of any news concerning your son, Pilot Officer H.R.

I am accordingly to ask that you will be good enough formally to confirm that you have received no further evidence or news regarding him.
I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
[signature]
For Director of Personal Services.
