Germany and England
by: Nesta Webster
Extract from a letter of a British Officer. (October 27, 1938.)
. . . We did not realize the war scare much down here. The only shock we had was the threat to billet 6,000 slum children and women upon us, apparently for the duration, which might have been some ten years. I never heard a more fantastic or ill-digested scheme.
I had a lot to do in the last war with billeting large bodies of troops, and also disposing of refugees and one thing I learned was that to dump swarms of undisciplined strangers on ordinary inhabitants and just tell the latter to carry on is the last thing to be done. It will produce rows, rapes, robberies, murders, food and water shortage and epidemics in no time at all.
