Letter from General Horne to Lieut. Ward a letter for delivery to Major General Russell, August 4th 1918
"My Dear Russell,
"This is to thank you for sending the platoon of Wellington Regiment to represent New Zealand at our anniversary service to-day—and very worthily they did so. They looked splendid. Very fine body of men and very smart in every way. I think we were all much impressed by their appearance and training. We had troops on parade of Canada, Australia and South Africa as well as France, Portugal and United States, and I am delighted that you were able to complete the picture. I hope that Ward and N.C.O.'s and men have been well looked after and have enjoyed their visit to I. Army.
"Again thanking' you and with all good wishes for good future and hoping that we may come together again some day.
(Sgd.) H. S. Horne."
