Madam,
I am commanded by the Air Council to state that in view of the lapse of time and the absence of any further news regarding your husband, Pilot Officer K. J. Broderick, since the date on which he was reported missing, they must regretfully conclude that he has lost his life, and his death has now been presumed, for official purposes, to have occurred on the 9th July, 1942.
The Council desire me to express again their sympathy with you in the anxiety which you have suffered, and in your bereavement.
I am, Madam,
Your obedient Servant,
RS Richards

Mrs. K. J Broderick,
21, Croydon Road,
Beckenham,
