AIR MINISTRY,
WHITTINGTON ROAD,
WORCESTER.

19th October, 1943.

Ref. Layne/963102/7.K.Cas.

Madam,

[underlined] 963102 Warrant Officer W.H. Layne. [/underlined]

I have to refer with regret to the fact that your husband has been officially promulgated as missing on 23rd/24th September, 1943 and [missing words] circumstances you will wish to be informed to what allowances you are entitled under Air Ministry regulations.

The records of this Department show that you are in receipt of family allowance and allotment(s) totalling 52/6d. per week, and this rate of payment will be continued by means of your present order book(s) up to and including order number 46 for week due for payment on 20th January, 1944. If your husband is still missing after that week, payment may continue for a further period of nine weeks unless in the meantime further information regarding him is received, when you will be notified of any amendment which may in consequence be necessary.

Any continuing allowance which may be due to you subsequently will be at the rate of pension which would be payable if a fatal casualty had been reported, and in order that this may be determined, I am to request that you will complete the enclosed form at your early convenience and return it to this Department in the envelope provided.

I am, Madam,
Your obedient Servant,

[signature]

for Director of Accounts.

Mrs. A.. Layne,
97 Harlaxton Road,
Grantham,
Lincs.
