R.A.A.F. CHANGE IN COMMAND. The first change in senior com- mand since the inception of the R.A.A.F. at Darwin, took place very recently when Group-Captain F. R. W.

CRISIS LOOMS IN PACIFIC [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 26 October 1941
CRISIS LOOMS IN PACIFIC Last night the A.B.C. reported that the Pacific crisis had grown worse, according to reports re- ceived from both Japan and America. The U.S. Secretary for War (Col. Knox) has issued an urgent warning of war, and it is thought that Col. Knox voices the opinion of the U.S. Administration. Col. Knox stated that Japan had no intention whatever of giving up her expansion plans, therefore a clash between the two nations was impossible to avoid in the near future. The Japanese newsagency Domei, states that America has done her ut- most to break diplomatic relations with Japan. The government and people of Japan, claims Domei, are retaining a peaceful attitude towards the U.S. Mr. Ballock, the former U.S. Am- bassador to France, said that Ameri- ca is going into this war almost im- mediately, whether she likes it or not.
