Letter to H.A. Titcomb 5 February 1919
Copies to be made for uncle HAT.
February 5th 1919
Sergeant Major H.A. Titcomb,
R.A.F. Repatriation Records,
43 St. Cross Road,
I saw Trenchard on Sunday and he expressed himself as amazed to hear of your history. He was not aware that you had been refused a Commission. I have heard from him today and understand that you will get your release in a few days time. If things should not go satisfactorily please let me know.
I understood from you that you do want to get out but are in no hurry; should the results of my efforts be more rapid than you anticipated do not be sufficiently quixotic to decline, because then you might stay there for years & years. I understand that the demobilisers have got to demobilise everybody and everything, including the regimental mascots, before their own turn comes.
Yours very truly,
Not named here.
