Letter of condolence

Back to the story

G2483. This is a transcript of the personal letter, images G2484, G2485, G2486. From the Officer Commanding 21 (B) Squadron RAF Watton in 1940. It was sent to the parents of Observer Sergeant Albert Williams, barely 20 who died when his aircraft was shot down following a successful raid. It would have been cold comfort to parents who had lost a son in the defence of his country.
