Dear Sir & Madam

In accordance with Air Ministry instructions, the personal effects of the above named as enumerated on the enclosed inventory, have been despatched to you by passenger train.

When the effects reach you, kindly sign and return the inventory, for which purpose a prepaid addressed label is enclosed herewith.

In this connection I would bring to your notice that in the event of your wishing to dispose of the uniform included among the personal effects, you should do so only to a person well-known to you as entitled to wear the uniform, or by sale to a reputable firm of tailors. On the other hand, you might like to know that Mrs. Mary Mathews of Officers' Kit Replacements, 72 South Audley Street, London, W.1., which is a charitable organisation instituted for the purpose of replacing the uniform of officers in cases of hardship, will probably be glad to have it.

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