Dear Mrs. Layne,

We have received your enquiry in which you ask for news of Warrant Officer W.H. Layne 963102.

We are sorry to tell you that no information has been received about him up to the present, but all possible enquiries are being made. Any news which may be forthcoming from the International Red Cross Committee at Geneva or from any other source, will be passed to you immediately. If, however, you are the registered next-of-kin, your first notification will come from the Air Ministry.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs. A.J. Layne,
