OTTAWA, Canada, 30th August, 1947.

Mrs. C.W. Boon,

10129 - 118th Street,

Edmonton, Alberta.

Dear Mrs. Boon:

Please find enclosed a photograph which has been received from Overseas, of the grave of your son, Warrant Officer Class II William Daniel Boon.

Cemeteries are being handed over progressively to the Imperial War Graves Commission, of which Canada is a member, who are entrusted with the perpetual maintenance of the resting places of all our Fallen, and who will beautify the graves and surroundings, and erect a permanent headstone at each grave.

It is not necessary for you to contact the Commission. Any discrepancy as to rank, etc., which may appear on the temporary cross shown in the enclosed photograph, will appear correctly on the permanent headstone.

Yours sincerely,

(W.A. Dicks) S/C

Wing Commander,

for Chief of the Air Staff.
