Ottawa, Canada, 28th August, 1943.

Mr. W. M. Mouat,
Ganges, British Columbia.

Dear Mr. Mouat:

Confirming my telegram of recent date, I am pleased to inform you that advice has been received through the International Red Cross quoting German information that your son, Pilot Officer William Ivan Mouat, is now a prisoner of war.

It is a pleasure to convey this further information as I feel it will relieve to some extent the great anxiety endured by you and Mrs. Mouat.

Attached is a leaflet giving particulars of Departments and Organizations from whom you can obtain advice and assistance, together with a few notes regarding personal effects, promotions, etc.

May I again assure you that any additional details received at these Headquarters will be communicated to you immediately.

Yours sincerely,
fr (W.R. Gunn)
Flight Lieutenant,
R.C.A.F. Casualties Officer,
For Chief of Air Staff
