Documents Relating to New Zealand's Participation in the Second World War 1939–45: Volume III
356 — Major-General Barrowclough to Lieutenant-General Puttick
Major-General Barrowclough to Lieutenant-General Puttick
Most secret and personal for General Puttick only. Have reason to believe we may be asked to undertake an active mission involving the whole Division about the end of July. Think it would be disastrous if we were not then in a position to accept. We might never afterwards get such an opportunity. This information is for you only and cannot yet be communicated to War Cabinet, but I will advise you when it may be passed on. You will see the vital bearing of this information on the topics raised in my most secret and personal letter to you of 24 May.
