No, I would not say that entirely. The real requirement is 16,000, eventually destined for the infantry. But there must be complete flexibility. Some of the personnel might be gunners converted to infantry; they might be existing G.S. infantry, people shifting from one place to another, but the net total increase which we wish to place in the pools on the other side of the Atlantic is 16,000 infantry.
