Office of the Minister of Defence
4 December 1945
Mrs E. Anderson
77 Nixon Street
Dear Mrs Anderson,
I have received a letter from Mr. Jordan stating that you had been told of a report of a Pilot Officer J.G. McCauley, a New Zealander, being released from a Prisoner of War Camp in Poland.
I have had enquiries made, Mrs. Anderson, but there is no trace of a Pilot Officer J.G. McCauley in the Royal New Zealand Air Force.
A wireless message, however, has been sent to Air Ministry, London, requesting them to forward any information they may have, and immediately a reply is received it will be sent on to you.
F Jones [signed]
MINISTER OF DEFENCE
