Dear Sir,
On the occasion when your son was reported missing on Active Service with the Royal Air Force some six months ago, it was my sad duty to write conveying the very sincere sympathy of my Council in your great anxiety.
While it would appear that you have had no occasion up to the present to avail yourself of their offer of help, my Committee have asked me to write reminding you that should you be in need of assistance either now or at any time in the future, they will be only too pleased to help you out of your difficulties.
Yours truly,
[signature]
Squadron Leader,
Joint Secretary.
