DOWNING STRKBT,
13 th June, 1934'
My dear Freethy,
You will remember that some weeks ago when the
Saudi-Yemeni war was going on, a party of some 200 Yemeni
soldiers took refuge at Kamaran and had to be interned at
Aden. I discussed with you the question of the cost of
rationing these internees and the Treasury agreed that the
charge should properly fall upon the Colonial and Middle
Eastern Services Vote. The Resident estimated that the
cost would be about £b per day.
We have now received a telegram from the Resident
asking for authority to incur expenditure on certain other
services which have arisen out of the war. I enclose a
copy of this telegram and of the previous telegraphic
correspondence regarding the internees.
You will see that the actual payments which
he now has to make are in respect of the transport of the
internees to Aden, their detention at Kamaran before
leaving for Aden and also the cost of transporting the armed
police to Hodeidah. I think I mentioned this last item to
you when we were discussing the question of the internees.
A party of 40 armed police had to be sent urgently from
Aden to Hodeidah at the time when there was a serious threat
of looting in the town and the Commander of the "Penzance”
represented
