452 Mr S. M. Bruce, High Commissioner in the United Kingdom, to Mr John Curtin, Prime Minister

Cablegram 54A LONDON, 2 April 1942


No doubt Evatt [1] has kept you fully informed of the very full
exchange of communications I have been having with him and of
recent developments. I feel however I should let you know
personally that in my contacts with Churchill during this last
week, and in particular an hour's frank talk which I had with him
on Tuesday evening [2], I have been impressed with the fact that
he has travelled a considerable way towards a better understanding
of our position and our needs. I am hopeful that this will bear
real fruit in the future.


1 Minister for External Affairs.
