13TH June 1944

Mrs. Curnock,
59, Minehead Street,
Leicester.

Dear Mrs. Curnock,
[underlined] Sgt. R.M. Curnock [/underlined]
We thank you for your letter of 10th June and are glad to know that you have had a recent letter from your son.
We have entered his address in our records and as we told you in our letter of May 17th, all parcels should be addressed to Stalag Luft 6. Letters you should continue to send to Stalag Luft 3 with Stalag Luft 6 in brackets. As the words “Lager A” have been deleted from your son’s card, it is not necessary to include these in the address.
We hope that your son gave you good news of himself when he wrote and that he will, in due course, receive the parcel you have despatched.
Yours sincerely,
p.p. E. M. THORNTON
DIRECTOR.
