Royal Air Force Station,
Stradishall,
Suffolk.
30th June, 1943.

Dear Mr. Jackson,
Please accept my very sincere sympathy in your great loss. There is little I can say other than the fact that your son will be very much missed. He was a grand, likeable chap and a very efficient A/G and his loss will be felt by the Squadron as a whole. There is still a chance that they may have baled out. if such is the case, the Red Cross will notify you in due course. Naturally, if we hear first, we shall communicate with you.
Enclosed are a few of the small personal effects, together with his brevet, which I feel sure you would like immediately, rather than wait until the rest of the kit will be released to you.
As you will see by the official letter, all the effects are to go to Colnbrook, there to await Air Ministry release.
Do not be afraid of writing if you think I can be of help in any way. Once again my deep sympathy.
Yours very sincerely,
[signature]
Committee of Adjustment Officer
[underlined]R.A.F. Base, Stradishall[/underlined]


Mr. C. G. Jackson,
136 Griffith Avenue,
Druncondre,
Dublin, Eire.
