238 — The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Secretary of State for War3
The Prime Minister of New Zealand to the Secretary of State for War3
An urgent request has been sent by the New Zealand Government to General Freyberg, GOC 2nd NZEF in the Middle East, to pay a short visit to New Zealand at once for the purpose of discussing in particular the future role of the 2nd New Zealand Division. It would be appreciated, therefore, if arrangements could be made for his immediate release and for the highest air priority to be given to him and to one other officer.
3 Rt. Hon. Sir (Percy) James Grigg, PC, KCB, KCSI; Secretary of State for War, 23 Feb 1942–4 Aug 1945.
