105 Squadron,
Swanton Morley,

8th May 1941.

Dear Mrs. Christian,

It is my unfortunate duty to have to inform you that your husband, W/Cdr. Christian is missing from an Operational flight this morning. But although officially missing we are full of hope that he is a prisoner of war.

As you are well aware, we are unable to give you any details at the moment, but from the reports of the crew of an accompanying aircraft, we, the Squadron, feel practically certain that the Wing Commander is safe.

If I may have permission to call on you, when we return south, I will give you a more complete picture of what we know, happened.

I have the honour to be madam,

Your obedient servant

[signature]

S/Ldr.
