Sir,
SECRET:-
ith reference to your letter of the 10th instant,
P. 1981, relative to the action which will be required in
the event of war breaki^ out with Persia, I am commanded
by My Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty to forward
herewith, for the information of the Secretary of state for
India in Council, copy of a telegram which has been sent to
the Commander in Chief, East Indies, on the subject.
My Lords consider it desirable that the Naval
and Military responsibility for any Operations should be
defined beforehand, and, as shewn in the telegram, they
have instructed the Commander in Chief that the Navy may
have to assist and cover the landing of troops, patrol of
the Gulf and the blockade of ports. All occupations of
Persian territory, including Bushire, would be a Military
responsibility/.
A further communication will be made on receipt
of a reply from the Commander in Chief. It must, however,
be borne in mind that our present Naval resources in the
Gulf are limited, owing to the combined Operations in the
Shatt-el-Arab, and the'necessity of assisting in the
defence of the Suez Canal.
I am further to enclose some notes by Vice-Admiral
Sir Edmond Slade which may be of use to the Secretary of
State in cojoaide-ring the situation.
\ I am, Sir,
Your obedient Servant,
