Dear Madam,

The King and Queen have heard with deep regret that it is now officially confirmed that your husband, Captain C.E. Robertson, who was previously reported as missing, has fallen in the service of his Country.

I am commanded to convey to you the expression of their Majesties' sympathy with you in your sorrow, and to assure you that during the long months of uncertainty Their Majesties' thoughts have been constantly with you and those who have been called upon to endure this exceptional burden of anxiety.

Yours very faithfully
(sd.) F.M. Ponsonby
Keeper of the Privy Purse.

Mrs C.E. Robertson.
