Dear Peter,
As promised, I am enclosing herewith some photostat copies of the Mailly - le - Camp reports. I regret that the quality of the printing is poor but I hope that you will find much to interest you in the content. I am sorry too that I have been unable to find a crew photograph for you; the print in the Memorial Flight Newsletter is all that I am able to offer. It is just possible that Pete Cameron might be able to help, but I am doubtful, and this lack of photographs has caused much disappointment on several previous occasions.
Please let me know if I can be of any further help, but in any case I shall always be pleased to hear from you, and once again – many, many thanks for the splendid 1997 calendar I have received from you.
Yours sincerely,
Alfi Bowdon
(Alan Gibson’s Rear Gunner in 166 Sqn)
