September, 1943.

Dear Mr. Madgett,
I am in receipt of your letter dated 21st September, 1943, requesting me to give you the date the cycle was sent to you.
The cycle has not yet been forwarded as I have to await an authority for its release from Colnbrook. That authority has been applied for and as soon as it is received here I shall at once despatch the cycle to Sidcup Station.
I have written to Colnbrook again today requesting that the authority be sent as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,

For GROUP CAPTAIN, COMMANDING,
R.A.F. STATION, SYERSTON.
Oct. 31 wrote asking if release had been obtained.

Mr. L.R. Madgett,
127 Longlands Road,
Sidcup, Kent.
