General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
For the information of War Cabinet, the 2nd New Zealand Division, under command of the Canadian Corps, is moving forward through the bridgehead won by the Canadians over the Marecchia River. The Greek Brigade have taken Rimini. They have done well and will now be advancing as part of the New Zealand Division. The enemy appears to be weaker on the front and may be withdrawing to another position. The situation on Fifth Army front also appears very favourable. Unfortunately the weather has broken and the forecast is not good.
A cable follows replying to recent cables from the Prime Minister.2
