RWB/DT. 16TH January 1945.
Company Sergeant Major A. Hill,
Dear Sergeant Major Hill,
Although it is some weeks since we were officially “Stood Down”, I have not really until now considered our Company activities completed.
We have however, reached a point where I fell that I should like to write to you and express my sincere thanks to you for all that you did for “C” Company.
Our association together commenced when shortly after my returning to Coventry I took over No.13 Platoon, and it was then that I quickly learnt both to appreciate and value you help and loyalty.
I know that you have had many difficulties with which to contend during the history of the Company, but I shall always feel that you where one of those outstanding members which formed it’s very backbone.
I do hope that we shall not altogether lose touch and I would like to send you my very best wishes for the future.
