It is with a feeling of tremendous pride that I greet you, and with reverent solemnity that I salute those of our comrades who made the supreme sacrifice to assist us to arrive here. The archievements of this Division have been equalled by only a very few, and surpassed by none. Our standards are high and our determination to meet those standards is firm.
With Divine assistance, little can delay, and nothing can stop us.

Signed by Major General Rose.
