Message to the Governor of Jamaica from the Secretary of State for the Colonies 16th November 1918.Now that the War has been brought to a victorious conclusion I desire on-behalf of his Majesty's Government to express to the people of Jamaica and her dependencies the mother country's high appreciation of the military efforts they have made. Their cheerful acceptance of compulsory service in the common cause and the unfailing support in the great struggle in spite of the difficulties in which visitations of nature have involved them at home I recall with pride and gratitude the share of men of Jamaica in our final victory in Palestine.
