No. 582 Squadron,
Little Staughton,
St Neots, HUNTS.
15th September, 1944.
Dear Mrs Wareing
Thank you very much indeed for your telegram of the 11th September 1944, as well as for the letters from Captain Yeoman and your husband.
Needless to say I am delighted at the good news, which confirms my estimate of Bob’s ability and resource: and the whole Squadron is at one with me in wishing you both every good wish and a speedy re-union.
Though I have no official intimation about any member of your husband’s crew, you will know that Flight Lieutenant Alan Hill has been here with us and that he was most enthusiastically welcomed. From him I understand that Warrant Officer Torrans, the Flight Engineer, also made his way to this country, though there again there is no official intimation.
Yours
[signature]
P.H. CRIBB.
