Training of the Division in Anti-Malaria Measures

This was not as thorough as it might have been, but the following measures were taken:


All officers were lectured on anti-malaria measures and an instructional film was shown.


Medical and combatant officers lectured to their troops.


Medical officers of the Division received sound instruction on the diagnosis, clinical features, and treatment of malaria, and certain selected officers attended courses of special laboratory training.


Unit squads attended three-day courses of instruction in New Caledonia. They also attended refresher courses on Guadalcanal, Vella Lavella, and Treasury.


A pamphlet containing advice on malaria precautions was given to every officer.
