regret to have to inform you that a report has been received from the War
Office to the effect that (No) 51510 (Rank) Pte
Clifford Barker Windus (Regiment) West Riding Regt.
posted as "missing" on the 29th September 1918
report that he is missing does not necessarily mean that he has been killed, as
he may be a prisoner of war or temporarily separated from his unit?
reports that men are prisoners of war take some time to reach this country, and
if he has been captured by the enemy it is probable that unofficial news will
reach you first. In that case I am to ask you to forward any letter received at
once to this office, and it will be returned as soon as possible.
Should any further official information be received it will at once be
communicated to you.
change of address should be immediately notified to this office.
