Charles Fleming was stationed in Italy in 1945 when he penned a two-page letter on American Red Cross paper to a woman who he addressed as "dearest".
It remained lost in the system for 64 years but finally arrived at a Royal Air Force base in England this week.
After carrying out some research, staff at the base passed the letter on to Charles Fleming's surviving niece. (Source)
