25th. May, 1945.
My Dear Mrs. Scandiffio,
The King and Queen have learned with sincere regret that your son, Pilot officer Francis Michael Scandiffio, has lost his life in the service of his country, as his brother, warrant Officer Thomas Peter Scandiffio, did.
I am commanded by their Majesties to assure you of their deepest sympathy in this double loss which you have sustained.
