Documents Relating to New Zealand's Participation in the Second World War 1939–45: Volume II
The originals of the documents published in this volume are held in the Prime Minister's Department and the Service Departments. All communications between the New Zealand Government and the Governments of the United Kingdom and of the Commonwealth of Australia, and between the New Zealand Government and the General Officer Commanding 2nd NZEF in the Middle East and official New Zealand representatives abroad, have not been published, but those omitted are of a trivial and personal nature only.
There has been no restriction on access to documents and no censorship. An arbitrary numbering has been adopted, but the despatches are otherwise in their original form except for some paraphrasing to comply with security requirements. In no case has the sense been altered.
The research for the three volumes in this series has been the work of L. S. Hart, formerly of the staff of War History Branch, and C. R. McColl, and the documents have been prepared for publication by W. A. Glue.
