Memorandum from General Freyberg to General Headquarters, Middle East
DETACHMENTS FROM NEW ZEALAND DIVISION
Confirming the verbal request made to your BGS by my GSO 1,2 I would be grateful if you would arrange for the New Zealand personnel lent to the Long Distance Patrol to be returned to their units at the earliest possible moment so that the units concerned may re-commence collective training.
If, in the interests of the service, it is not practicable to return these men at once, will you please give me a firm date on which you will be able to release them.
B. C. Freyberg,
Commanding New Zealand Division
