Many Church of England members received instruction and were confirmed during the war. While Bishop Gerard was with the Division he conducted many confirmation services, and at other times help was received from visiting Bishops, including those of Pretoria, Uganda, Persia, Portsmouth, Maidstone and Ripon, while in Italy New Zealanders were confirmed during the visits of the Archbishop of York and the Bishops of Lichfield, Southwark, and North Africa. The Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem confirmed many in Syria and Palestine, and in Cairo Bishop Gwynne and Bishop Gelsthorpe were always available in All Saints' Cathedral, and on many occasions arranged special confirmation services for New Zealanders in transit.
