Madam,

I am directed to refer to our telegram of October 25th and to inform you that the message from your husband, Acting Squadron Leader Robert Wareing, was as follows:-

"Hullo, [sic] Joan darling, I am now feeling much better after having recovered from my burns. You can now write to me at Stalag Luft 1. I am sorry I was not able to make my last leave but my next one will mean that we shall always be together. Give my regards to our parents and everyone. All my love, dearest,
Yours always, Bob".

Official confirmation that your husband is a prisoner of war is awaited.
