Letter from Fraser's daughter

''I was only two years old at the time and my brother six weeks old, my mother died at the age of forty-nine. When war was declared my brother James choose to serve in the Navy. After a short training at HMS Collingwood, I think I am correct in saying he was on his first convoy when the Belmont and all members of the crew were lost. He was the same age as my father and had only been married for two years. I shall always be glad my mother was spared the sorrow of this second tragedy.

I am the only one left of our little family and am sorry I cannot be of more help.

Yours sincerely

F. S. Fraser.''
