[underlined] NOTE [/underlined]

After the aircraft accident on the 1 December 1943, Ken received six letters from the Mothers of his crew.

They were the same . . . .

Dear Ken,

We were all devastated to hear the news at the loss of our dear Son - .

However, we were so pleased to hear that you were fortunate enough to survive the crash. We send all our good wishes to you at Halton for a very speedy recovery.

Yours [underlined] . . . [/underlined]

(These letters – few lines, were kept by Ken all his life until they just fell apart. It would seem memories can last forever.)
