Letter from Auchinleck to Lt.-Gen. N.M. [Neil] Ritchie, referring to his report (AUC/901 above), stating that he does not agree with Ritchie's plan to make a deliberate advance through the Jebel, driving the enemy before him; nor with his object 'to secure Cyrenaica', because he thinks that the true object of the 8th Army is to destroy the enemy forces in Cyrenaica as far to the eastwards as may be possible, so as to enable the British forces to occupy Cyrenaica rapidly and thereafter hold it securely. Typescript, signed.
