§ Mr. Head
This conference, which took place from 7th to 10th November, dealt with infantry matters and was attended by military representatives of Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. The United Kingdom delegation was headed by Major-General F. R. G. Mathews, the Director of Infantry at the War Office.
The object of the conference was to review the current development of equipment, to arrange standardisation trials where developments are sufficiently advanced, and to interchange information regarding weapons and equipment. Discussion covered the majority of infantry equipments but not the rifle and its ammunition which are being separately handled. Good progress was made in deciding on the lines of future developments and on the allocation of responsibilities to the participating countries.
