Yes, I realise that it means a paper or piece of paper, but what I need to know if it is a document in itself or a piece of paper for classification( as in a alphabetical classified book, etc.) within the file or record.

Ah, okay. Well, again, I'm just guessing, but by what is written (The reference:) and using a colon, I would suspect that this "reference" is on slip B.



the reference here is not mentioned in the text I put it to say that this in the text of the reference..
Topic: give a fair field
Posted: Tuesday, February 2, 2021 3:50:53 AM
As regards the visit home, I briefly referred to the discussions which had previously taken place, of the general sense of which Mr. Hearn was aware. I said that, anxious as we might be on general grounds that the A.P.O.C. should succeed in getting this concession, we were quite definitely tied by the undertakings we had given to the United States Government to give a fair field and no favour and that it was obviously most important to take no step which could admit of misinterpretation.

what is meant by give a fair field in this context?

thanks in advance

THANKS FOR YOU. YES IT IS MADE (mistake in deciphering the handwritten text)

Cavalry carbines could be found in stocks, they could probably be trade fit to fire. As these rifles are no longer required for Army purposes and would otherwise be scrapped, they might be sent at approximately half price, plus the cost of freight and packing charges.

Do you have any idea what is meant by "fit to fire" here.

Here is where it is mentioned: the sender (A. E. B. Parsons) signs with his name and position initials:

"A Copy of under-mentioned papers is forwarded to the Dept. of Education Health & Lands for information.
By order, etc.,
Signed: A. E. B. Parsons
D. S. F."

Do you have any suggestion what "DSF" or "D.S.F." stands for. It is a position held by the British officer Arthur Edward Broadbent Parsons
