The Prime Minister to General Freyberg
The Minister of Defence and I are most grateful for your messages, which we have found most informative and helpful and which we have warmly welcomed. We are delighted to hear of the success of the New Zealand Division under your leadership, and on behalf of the Government and people of New Zealand I should be glad if you would accept and convey to all ranks our warmest congratulations and every good wish.
The operations have been closely followed here from day to day, and we are proud to know that the New Zealand Division has once again proved its qualities and has maintained its world-wide reputation as a fighting force second to none.
