The Under Secretary of State for Air presents his compliments to Mr. A. Adder and begs to forward herewith photographs of cross marking the grave of No 175073, Pilot Officer (rank) Mervyn Adder (full name).

These have been received from the Army Graves Service, who are responsible for the temporary marking of war graves.

Temporary crosses will be replaced in due course by permanent headstones to be erected by the Imperial War Graves Commission. Details of the inscription on the temporary cross will be carefully checked at that stage and any errors rectified before the permanent headstone is erected.

Air Ministry, London, S.W.1 Date 28th April, 1949
