24.2.45.
I have just been repatriated from Germany, where I was in the same camp as your husband. I am glad to be able to give you first hand news of him, & tell you that he was fit & well & in good spirits when I last saw him.
We were both on the same squadron & when I first saw him in Germany I noticed that he had lost weight. He also had burns on the hands. By the time I left, however, the burns had cleared up & he was putting on weight again. F/Lt. King, the navigator was also there & F/Lt. Hill (as no doubt you know) got home. I have no news of the other members of the crew.
It seems as tho’ the war may be over soon, so I hope you will be welcoming him home before long.
With best wishes, Yours sincerely,
PR Sherlock
