Dear Mrs. Wareing,
We have had your two letters of October 22nd and October 24th and are delighted to hear the good news that you have had a message broadcast to you from your husband, Squadron Leader Robert Wareing, D.F.C., N0. 86325.
We have consulted our Broadcasting Section and are able to verify this message. As soon as official confirmation is received that your husband is a prisoner, we shall pass over all correspondence concerning him to our Prisoners of War Department at St. James’s Palace, and they will then tell you how you should write to him and how parcels can be sent.
We are indeed delighted to think that your anxiety has ended with such good news.
Yours sincerely,
[signature]
Chairman.
Ppsh
Mrs. Wareing,
