Dear Mrs Latham,

You may like to know that at a ceremony in Fossvogur Cemetery on 7th June, a Cross of Sacrifice was unveiled, commemorating the British war dead in Iceland. The ceremony was simple, but most moving, was conducted by the Lord Bishop of Iceland. A party from H.N.S. Coquette of the Royal Navy fired a salute and their buglers blew the Last Post. I myself read the lessons and called the roll of the dead.

I enclose a photograph of the ceremony, which I am sure you will wish to have.

Yours sincerely,
J.S. Greenway
H.M. Minister
