Dear Sir,

The Committee of Adjustment, composed of myself and two others, which is being held in accordance with Air Ministry instructions 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.

The sum of £6:0:0, found amongst the effects has been placed to the credit of the estate, and you will hear direct from Air Ministry (Accounts 13 Branch) Worcester in due course in regard thereto and any other monies due. Monetary matters are not dealt with by this office, and all correspondence relative thereto should, therefore, be addressed to the Air Ministry.

Enclosed herewith is a statement of claims against the private estate which do not fall to be dealt with by the Air Ministry in their administration of the service estate, and their settlement is a matter for the next of kin or legal representative. Claims, if any, chargeable against the service estate will, however, be dealt with by the Air Ministry and shown in the final statement of account.

I also enclose an inventory of the personal effects held at this office, which are being forwarded to you in accordance with Air Ministry instructions. A Post Office Savings Book has been forwarded direct to Air Ministry by the Unit.

Kindly quote the above reference in any future correspondence.

Yours faithfully,

Squadron Leader, Commanding,
