[underlined] 2204350. Sgt. Dennis G.C. [/underlined]

Dear Sir,

Amongst the personal effects of your son, an envelope addressed to you was found.

In accordance with regulations, this was retained in safe custody pending a definite classification of the casualty. As, unhappily, Sgt. Dennis has now been presumed dead, the envelope has – again in accordance with regulations – been opened by an Officer at this unit, in case it should contain some testamentary document, but was found to contain a letter, which I enclose.

I trust that you will realize that the delay in sending it, and the fact that the envelope has been opened are due to the regulations referred to above.

Yours faithfully,

[signature]

for Wing Commander, Commanding,
[underlined] R.A.F. CENTRAL DEPOSITORY. [/underlined]

R.H. Dennis Esq,
59, Thrush Drive,
