Major-General Barrowclough to the Deputy Prime Minister
I greatly appreciate your very kind message, which is being published in Divisional Orders and will be a source of pride to all ranks of this force. This Division has waited long for its opportunity and I am indeed proud of the enterprise and fortitude of my Command in its first contact with a very implacable foe. Please convey my thanks to the Prime Minister and my hopes that he will shortly recover from his present indisposition.
