General Freyberg to the Minister of Defence
Regret I was hit on the evening of the 27th, but I shall not be long recovering. I have handed over to Brigadier Inglis2 who, I am certain, will do the job well. Anticipating your approval I have page 112 promoted him acting Major-General. We have been holding a position1 and have been attacked from north, south, and east. All attacks have been repulsed. The troops have been excellent and morale is high.
2 Major-General L. M. Inglis commanded the Division from 27 Jun to 16 Aug 1942.
