Dear Mr Wilson.

Thanks for letter. We also had a telegram on Friday to say our Son was a prisoner. I have delayed writing you hoping to hear all the crew are safe so that I could advise you accordingly. At the moment I know 4 of them are, Pilot, Navigator, Air Gunner, & Bomb Aimer, I sincerely hope good news comes through of the others although it will be some time before I hear of the other Air Gunner, he is a Canadian. My own opinion of what happened is that they got badly iced & as soon as they made Holland they bailed out. Whatever happened it is great to know they are safe.

Yours sincerely,

[signature]
