Dear Squadron Leader Wareing,
When I was at Scunthorpe on Tuesday last I was very surprised to know that anyone from the Frodingham Works was likely to be so near to the mines owned by the Company in this district, and perhaps I might extend to you a very sincere invitation to come along and see us at any time you feel you have a loose end.
I know too that our village would very much like to use your services in the “Wings for Victory” week which is being held June 19th. to 26th. and whether you are an expert speaker or not, I know that they would very much welcome you at any functions you may be able to attend.
They are particularly asking me to find someone to officially open the “Wings for Victory” week, which will be about 3 p.m. on Saturday the 19th. at a Garden Fete to be held at “Highfield.”
I know full well that you may think this is something of a “dog hanging”, but believe me, the general public are very interested in you good fellows who are giving such efforts for us.
Yours sincerely,
[signature]
Chas. B. Bailey.
