LINCOLN.

21st March, 1944.

Ref: 52B/CA. 1384/44.

Dear Mr Adder,

As the officer detailed to supervise the collection of your son’s belongings, may I be permitted to offer you my deepest sympathy during this time of anxiety.

In order to ensure the safeguarding of your son’s effects, they have been carefully checked and packed, and are being despatched to:-

The Central Depository,
R.A.F. Colnbrook,
Slough, Bucks.

where they will be held for some little time prior to their release by Air Ministry on the completion of the necessary formalities. All communications with regard to the effects should now be addressed to The Central Depository.

Your son’s National Saving Stamps have been forwarded to Air Ministry.

If there are any other matters on which I can help you, do please let me know.

Your faithfully,

[signature]

Air Commodore Commanding,
[underlined] R.A.F. Base Scampton. [/underlined]

Mr. A. Adder,
153 Albert Ave.,
[underlined] HULL [/underlined].
