Dear Sir,

The Committee of Adjustment composed of myself and two others which is being held at this office in accordance with Air Ministry in[missing letters]uctions to deal with the estate of the above named, in so far as the Royal Air Force is concerned, desires to express deep sympathy with you in your bereavement.

I enclose an inventory of the personal effects held at this office which will be forwarded to the legal representative of the deceased as soon as Air Ministry authority for their release is received.

Monetary matters are not dealt with by this office but by the Air Ministry, (Accounts 13 Department), Whittington Road, Worcester who will in due course, send a state of the service estate showing all service credits (e.g. cash found in effects, pay due, etc), and liabilities and will remit any balance to the deceased's legal representative. Correspondence relative to these matters, therefore should not be addressed to this office.

Kindly quote the above reference in any future correspondence.

Yours faithfully,
Squadron Leader, Commanding,
[underlined] R.A.F. Central Depository. [/underlined]

L.R. Madgett, Esq.,
127, Longlands Road,
