Dear F/Sgt. Puskas,
I have your letter of the 15th inst. for which I thank you. As a result, you have all been enrolled as life members of the above Club, and I am having your official membership cards prepared. I hope to receive these from the processors during the next two or three weeks, when I will send them along, together with the Club badges.
I should like to congratulate you on your escape, and hope that you sustained no injuries.
Would you be good enough to let me have the full addresses of the crew members? I should like these in connection with post-war activities of the Club.
Best wishes to you all,
Yours sincerely,

C.A. Robertson.
Hon. Secretary.
This is to Certify that
F/Sgt. S. Puskas
