Dear Mrs. Ellis,

In replying to your letter of the 6th inst. I beg to inform you that I have no knowledge of your husband leaving a letter for you. There is no compulsion for aircrew to leave such correspondence for next of kin.

Any letters received by your husband prior to his being reported missing would be forwarded to Colnbrook together with his effects and with regard to any will which you mention, I regret no trace of any can be found.

I regret that up to the time of writing no information has been received of any members of your husband’s crew.

I remain,
Yours sincerely,

[signature]

[underlined] Flight Lieutenant [/underlined]


Mrs D. C. H. Ellis,
