Hi,

The letter reads:

Leverkusen, 19.10.2021

Dear Josiah Sant Singh,

Thank you for your letter.
Since my youth flying was always my dream. The war made it possible for me. As a fighter pilot I could defend myself.
"Thank God" I survived.
Later I also made my private pilot license.
A war is never to be appreciated.

With kind regards
Hugo Broch

Best regards
Armin
