414 Mr A. W. Fadden, Acting Prime Minister, to Mr R. G. Menzies, Prime Minister (in London)
Cablegram 238 20 April 1941,
With reference your M.38 of 1st April  please see my 239 of even date to Dominions Office.  Latham  has advised of report that 10 divisions concentrated in Formosa and 3 in Hainan and transports for whole force in readiness for attack on Singapore to synchronize with German bombing attack on Suez Canal.
Casey  also refers similar reports received in Washington. If joint declaration at present time could be arranged would therefore be most opportune.
