General Freyberg to the Prime Minister
Reference your telegram of 23 May. I now fully understand the position and will proceed with arrangements for the return of the 6000 draft. The outline scheme as set out in my telegram of 22 May (No. 263) remains the same except for the following alterations in numbers and percentages:
Paragraph (1): Substitute 5800 other ranks.
Paragraphs (3) and (4): Substitute two-thirds for 35 per cent.
Paragraph (6): Substitute 30 for 20.
It is considered that the number of officers for return cannot be increased.
