SECRET AND PERSONAL

54, Broadway
S.W.1
14th September 1942

Dear [G.M. Garro Jones]

I attach the notes I promised concerning B.N. Wallis and his invention.

In my whole experience of aeronautical engineers and inventors, I have never come across one whom I consider more able, and it seems a pity that such a man whose brain is probably worth four or five thousand a year, should be baulked so consistently by a Civil Service mind, whose maximum value is probably six hundred per annum.

Excuse me for speaking rather plainly.

Yours sincerely,

[Wing Commander F.W. Winterbotham]

G.M. Garro Jones, Esq.,
