Scope and Contents

Letter from WSC [First Lord of the Admiralty] to Field Marshal 1st Lord Kitchener [Secretary of State for War] on the need for artillery on the Western Front, suggesting that territorial batteries be sent to India, and regular artillery brought home: "It is an awful pity to leave these splendid batteries keeping order among natives when trained artillery is our bitterest need. I think myself that every regular battery in India except mountain, ought to come home and be replaced by territorials". WSC also comments on rifles and ammunition for the Naval Division and mentions the Divisional Cavalry, asking if it would be possible for the Oxfordshire Yeomanry to be transferred to the Division.
