\ matter of considerable general in- | terest is referred to by the Minister of , Defence (Sir James Allen) m a letter / to Mr W. H. Field, M.P., on the subject of an application by the latter tor war trophies for Levin. "The principle governing the distribution oi war trophies in the Dominion," says the Minister "is that all trophies captured by the troops on the Western front are distributed between the towns in which the headquarters of each regiment is situate. War trophies captured by the troops on the Eastern front are dealt with in similar maimer. Instructions have been issued by the Commandant, N.Z. Military Forces, to headquarters [of units that war trophies allotted to the towns in which regimental headquarters is situate are not to be considered the exclusive' property of those towns alone, but as the property of tho regimental area, and that the claims of other towns in that area must receive consideration. Officers commanding units have also been instructed to confer with the Mayors of towns in which their headquarters are situate, requesting them to communicate with the Mayors of other towns in that area with a view to forming a committee to deal with the distribution of these trophies on an equitable basis. Any war trophies that may be allotted to the regimental! area in which Levin is situate will be issued to the Mayor of Palmerston North, and it is suggested, therefore, that he be approached on the matter."
