General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
I have to report that the Division is trained and up to war strength and is now moving in stages to the Western Desert. The reinforcements here in Maadi are shaping well and will be fit to take their place in a month.
Tomorrow I move from here to Headquarters in the desert, therefore delay will occur in answering cables. Everyone is in excellent spirits and good health.
