Item 03 : General William Holmes Papers regarding capitulation, September-October 1914 - Page 24
To the Commander of HMAS Ship Australia
In the name of three more prisoners I ask you kindly to submit to His Excellency the Admiral the following
We four prisoners are private business people from Herbertshöhe and never had any part whatsoever in this war. Only on Sunday morning we came on our own to the head quarters at Herbertshöhe to get pass-ports in order to continue our regular work.
