Sir: Further to Michael-De-la Noy's excellent obituary of Group Captain Peter Townsend (21 June), your readers may be interested to note that the Group Captain remained a member of the Royal Household as an Extra Equerry. This is a mark of the sovereign's personal favour, and is therefore an indication of the esteem which the royal family still maintained for Peter Townsend.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Rutter
