The Governor-General of New Zealand to the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs
The New Zealand Government are greatly disturbed to learn from General Freyberg that it is now proposed that the Second Echelon of the New Zealand Expeditionary Force on arrival in the United Kingdom is to be widely dispersed and not concentrated as previously arranged. The exigencies of the situation are fully realised, but they feel that they must ask His Majesty's Government in the United Kingdom to do what is possible to make more suitable arrangements than those that are apparently proposed, and especially to make every effort to accommodate the echelon as far as possible in one body and in a suitable locality.
