HC Deb 21 March 1898 vol 55 c380

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that soldiers who have left the Army can, since 1st January, return without refunding deferred pay, it is possible to introduce a regulation which would condone the fault committed by men who re-entered the Army before the above date under assumed names to avoid the obligation of repayment, so as to put these men on the same footing as present recruits, and allow them to resume their proper names?


No, Sir. We are unable to adopt the course suggested.
