SIR- THOMAS MACKENZIE'S VIEWS. LONDON, May K5. Disftisaions are proceeding in official circles regarding the desirability of es-; tablisliing' »n Imperial Gtferd. inquiries among Canadian and Australian soldiers indicate that- many are willing to join provided the period oF service is short, it i.s generally agreed that
the scheme presents difficulties of organisation. Sir Thomas Mackenzie, interviewed, agreed that the effect of thejeormation of the unit would be good from an Imperial point of view, but it might not be approved by New Zealand, which discouraged the military spirit except for defensive purposes. .rossibly it would not be a welcome proposal that the Dominion should send its sons six thousand miles for a prolonged period of service.
