56, West Common Gardens,
Old Brumby,
Scunthorpe,
Lincolnshire.
2nd February, 1945.
Dear Sir,
I wish to make enquiries with regard to moving my husband’s car now that he is a Prisoner of War. My husband (Squadron Leader Wareing) was reported ‘missing’ last year and the Officer Commanding his last station requests me to move the car to the above address. I have communicated with the O/C regarding the necessary petrol etc. and he advises me to ask your help and advise in this matter. The car is at Market Harborough and I wish to move same to Scunthorpe.
The approximate amount of petrol I should need is 5 gallons to make this single journey, the car being an Austin 7. I have already written to the local Taxation office regarding licencing, insuring etc. and am awaiting their reply.
Should you need further evidence I will readily forward same and my husband’s former R.A.F. station address.
Yours faithfully,
[signature]
