Dear Mrs Wareing,

Your husband's name has been passed to me from St. James's Palace.

I am writing to tell you that to all Camps and Hospitals where there are known to be British Prisoners of War we send regularly from this Section large consignments of Invalid Foods and Medicines, as well as Medical requisites. I hope, therefore, that should he have needed anything of that kind he would have been able to obtain a supply from the reserve stores that the Medical Officers have at hand.

[page break]

If, however, at any time, and for any special reason, you should feel anxious about his health, please let me know, as I would then at once write by Air Mail to his Senior British Medical Officer and ask for a report.

Yours sincerely,

Muriel Bromley Davenport
Manager,
Invalid comforts Section.
