Within ten days of the Newfoundland Governor receiving the Spring Rice Document, two armed patrol vessels, each carrying and armed forty man unit of the Newfoundland Regiment, were on their way to the Harbour Deep area of Northern Newfoundland. The Newfoundland Government, acting on information contained in the document, ordered all enemy aliens in Newfoundland to be detained; including eight of nine Moravian missionaries in Labrador. While these events were unfolding, Newfoundlanders in Europe were being slaughtered in battles fought on poorly based strategies, which Winston Churchill described as doomed offences. The Spring Rice Document tells the story of Newfoundland during WWI as well as sheds new light on decisions made and the battles fought, enhancing the admiration and respect of those whose courage, dedication, and loyalty contributed to changing world history.
