Item 05: General William Holmes reports of operations and instructions for officers, 1914-1915 - Page 4
[Continuation of translation]
The Telephone Bureau in Herbertshohe is entirely destroyed.
Father Dick was taken prisoner from a boat which had put in from Vunapope but was later released. I told the officer that a message to the wireless station and to the Governor's Private Secretary would take at least 6 to 7 hours.
Kindly sent me news of the Europeans at Herbertshohe.
