HC Deb 30 July 1914 vol 65 c1558
54. Captain FABER

asked the Secretary for War how many desertions of noncommissioned officers have taken place in each of the last three years, ending 31st March, from the Army; and how many desertions of the men in each of the same years?


The returns do not give details of desertions by ranks, and it is not possible therefore to give separate statistics for non-commissioned officers, and for men. The figures for non-commissioned officers and men are as follows:—

1911 1,664
1912 1,583
1913 1,552
