British support for 'Whites' in Siberia

Order signed by Admiral Kolchak praising British support for the 'White' cause in Siberia, 18 January 1919.

Alexander Kolchak was the commander of 'White' military forces in Siberia and the best known of the anti-Bolshevik military leaders in Russia. In this order, signed at Omsk on 18 January 1919, he thanks the British military mission in Siberia for its support in establishing a training school for 'White' Russian army officers and NCOs on Russian Island, near the port of Vladivostok. Particular praise is reserved for the head of the British mission, General Alfred Knox, a close ally of Kolchak's and a staunch advocate of Allied involvement against the Bolsheviks.
