Sir??

Seriously, though, I'll take a look in some of the correspondence files I've got.

Regards

Hmm,

They were still very formal back in the 60's and 70's. Lot's of 'Dear Molony' and 'Dear Brigadier', and a couple of 'Sirs'. The most informal header I have found so far is this one from a letter by Ronald Lewin - sorry it doesn't help much, but I will keep looking.

If I find anything more useful, I will post up here.

Maddening isn't it? I only asked because https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_o ... _World_War doesn't have his first name. ;O)
