Dear Mr and Mrs Clark,

I must apologise for not having written to you sooner, but life has been a little mixed up here during the last week or so.

I understand that our mid-upper gunner, Bob Hay wrote to you and told you what happened.

I was in hospital when it all happened. I arrived back here on Wednesday and Dermot being an Aussie no one had seemed to worry about informing any of the people he knew

in this country.

Dermot never left any address other than that of his Father. It was only from knowing him so well that we have been able to tell most of the people that knew him.

I offer my sincere sympathy to you all. Dermot always spoke of you and how happy you had made him feel in this country.

If there is anything else I can do please let me know as I will be only too pleased.

I hope that I may have the chance to see you again sometime soon.

Yours very sincerely

Hector Scott.
