304 — General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
I have to report that your Division moved into the line on the Sangro River on 11 November. We are working in most difficult mountainous country as an independent force directly under General Montgomery in the forthcoming offensive on the Sangro River line. We have attached to us an Indian brigade group.
The Division is in my opinion well equipped and fit to carry out the pending operations. It is cold and wet weather. All are well and in good spirits.
