My dear Mrs Hamilton

I very much regret that we have no further news of your Son. His pilot F/L Thomas was very uncertain as to where the aircraft was at the time your son baled out. He, the pilot, had a lot of glass in his eyes and tho’ he remembered your son baling out it was very difficult for him to decide where. The aircraft travelled some distance before the pilot finally baled out. F/L Thomas is still on sick leave following his re-patriation.

I am indeed sorry that I cannot be of more assistance to you and so help your husband through his illness.

I will contact F/L Thomas and [deleted] so then [/deleted] ask him to answer your letter in the meantime thank you very much for your kind message and I only wish

[page break]

I could have been more helpful and encouraging.

Yours sincerely,
