W.1.
6th April 1944
Ref. P413893/44/P4. B3.

Sir,
I am directed to confirm a telegram from this department in which you were notified that information has now been received through the International Red Cross Committee that your son Sergeant Victor Richard Mindilski Royal Air Force, is a prisoner of war.
The Committee’s report quotes German information but does not give the address of the camp at which your son is located; he should, however, now be able to communicate this direct to you.
A pamphlet regarding communications with prisoners of war is enclosed as it may be of service to you.
I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
[signature]
for Director of Personal Services

F. Mindilski Esq.

A. 2068
