Dear Mrs. Wareing,
Thank you very much for your letter, which I was very pleased to receive.
I am so glad you have received news of your husband, and I do hope he will soon be at home with you again.
The other day, I was on a V.C.P. journey, when I gave a lift to an airman. He was a flight mechanic, and as he said he
[page break]
was at Desborough, I asked him if he knew of your husband. You would I am sure, have liked to have heard all the nice things he said about him, for he knew him well. He was delighted to hear all about your husband!
The lady round the corner – “Mac & Jean” – wishes to be remembered to you. Her husband has now left here, and he is on a special course, and he is going on operations in November.
With best wishes, & hoping you soon have more good news,
Yours sincerely,
S. Sowter
