Dear Colonel,


We have just received information that the operations for Z day have been postponed for 48 hours.


No Programme of Bombardment or official orders have been received yet, until such orders are received the General wishes Wire cutting to be continued where required taking advantage of the extra two days to profit by good light – Ammunition should not be expended unnecessarily but where wire remains it should be engaged – He also wants 18 prs to continue preventing the repair of wire.

As soon as possible a programme for the extra two days will be sent out.

Yours Sincerely A.F. Brooke
