HC Deb 27 August 1914 vol 66 c158
69. Colonel BURN

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether the case of cadets of the Royal Military Academy and the Royal Military College, who have been spending their vacation in Germany to study the language, will be taken into consideration, and the period of their detention allowed to be reckoned as Army service?


Their commissions will bear the same date as that of the remaining cadets of the batch with which they should have passed out.

Colonel BURN

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that they would have got their commissions now, and that therefore they will lose possibly a year or more?


My answer is designed to cover that case, and they will get their commission with the batch that they would otherwise have got.
