World War II Missing in Action

World War II telegram to Helen Dallen informing her that her husband, John Dallen, is missing in action while flying over the Hump (Himalaya Mountains).

This is the telegram that Peggy’s mom received when John went missing. By the time Helen got the telegram, John had already made it out of the jungle (on an elephant), but not in time to beat the telegram sent by the army.
