97 (Straits Settlements) Squadron,
Royal Air Force,
Bourn, Cambridge.
8th December, 1943.

Dear Mrs Layne,
Thank you for your letter of December 3rd, we are glad to know that your husband is well and that you have heard from him.
With regards to the question of his officers uniform, I do not consider it advisable to send this on to him, taking all things into consideration. I suggest that you write direct to the International Red Cross Committee on this subject and no doubt they will give you a definite ruling. In the meantime, may I suggest that you send your husband some P/O tape (the narrow blue strip) which he would be able to wear on hiss present battle dress.
I thank you on behalf of the Squadron for you kind wishes and I hope the day is not far distant when you will be reunited with your husband again.
Yours sincerely,
[signature] Williams
for F/Lt. and Adjutant.
[underlined]97 Squadron. R.A.F. Bourn[/underlined]

Mrs. T. Layne,
97 Harlaxton Road,
Grantham,
