Dear Sir or Madam,
Your name and address have been passed to the British Legion by the Netherlands War Graves Committee together with an invitation to you and close relatives to visit the War Cemetery in Holland in which your relative is buried.
I now write to inform you that the British Legion has accepted the invitation and agreed to organise groups which will leave London on the following dates:-
Monday 2nd May returning on Friday 6th May
Friday 27th May “ Tuesday 31st May
Friday 17th June “ Tuesday 21st June
Friday 8th July “ Tuesday 12th July
As in previous years all members of the groups will be accommodated in Dutch homes, freely opened, without recompense from any source as a token of gratitude for the sacrifices made by the British people, all costs for internal travel whilst in Holland being met through the generosity of the Netherlands War Graves Committee.
The cost per person is thus limited to the cost of travel to and from Holland, and calculated from London will be £10.10.0.
Should you wish to take advantage of this invitation please address your request for application forms to the General Secretary, British Legion, 49 Pall Mall, London, S.W.1. marking your letter “Dutch Pilgrimage” and give the name of the cemetery concerned.
Yours faithfully,
M.F. Janes
Secretary – Welfare Department
