Advice has been received from the Royal Canadian Air Force Casualties Officer, Overseas, that your son, who was a member of the crew of an aircraft, lost his life during air operations at 5:30 A.M. on February 26, 1943.

You may be assured that any further information received will be communicated to you immediately.

May I take this opportunity to offer you my deepest sympathy.

Yours sincerely,
