OTTAWA, 19 July, 1951.

Mrs. E.V. Fitzgerald,
2317 Maple Ave.,
New Westminster, B.C.

Dear Mrs. Fitzgerald:

Some time ago a Mrs. C. Jensen of Shaunovon, Saskatchewan, contacted these Headquarters through a branch of the Canadian Legion. Mrs. Jensen had been visiting in Denmark and had secured photographs of graves of some Royal Canadian Air Force boys buried in Denmark. One of the photographs was the resting place of your son. Mrs. Jensen had the negative which on request she forwarded here and the enclosed prints were made.

In some inexplicable manner the photographs became mislaid and only recently were found, and I now hasten to forward these photographs to you with sincere apologies for the delay that has ensued. I am aware that you already have photographs of your son's grave, but I am quite sure you will appreciate the thoughtfulness of Mrs. Jensen.

May I take this opportunity of expressing to you and the members of your family my deepest sympathy in the loss of your gallant son.

Yours sincerely,

(W.R. Gunn)
Wing Commander
R.C.A.F. Casualties Officer
for Chief of the Air Staff.
