Downham Market,
Norfolk.
18th July, 1942.

Dear Mr. Green,
I was delighted to get your message. Nothing has been heard yet from the Air Ministry but I shall, no doubt, be receiving information very shortly. Friends in Kings Lynn have heard from another member of the crew.
2. Could you forward your son’s letter? I would not keep it for more than a day or two.
3. With hearty congratulations on your son’s escape.
Yours sincerely,
[signature]
Wing Commander, Commanding,
