PHONE: BUCKMINSTER 228.
CHAS. B. GAILEY, M.I.MIN.E, A.M.I. MECH.E.
COLSTERWORTH,
NEAR GRANTHAM,
LINCS.
3rd July 1943.
Squadron Leader Wareing,
R.A.F. Cottesmore,
Oakham.
Dear Squadron Leader Wareing,
I am sorry to have been so long writing you in the matter of the Colsterworth “Wings for Victory” week to let you know the total obtained in that village; the figure reached was £11,363.10.11d. and I think you will agree with me that it is most gratifying, and shows how valuable your “stir up” was at the opening on the Saturday.
I know I am expressing the views of the Committee, and certainly of myself, in saying how glad we were to see you and have the benefit of your talk.
I hope we may see something of you in the near future, and repeat our previous invitation to come along at any mutually convenient time.
Kindest regards.
Yours sincerely,
[signature]
