§ 41. Sir JOHN DEWAR
asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that several hundred men of the G Company of the Royal Army Medical Corps were, without being consulted, transferred to an Infantry battalion; if he is ware that eighty-two Scotsmen so transferred protested that they desired to remain in the Royal Army Medical Corps, but, if the transfer was compulsory, they wished to be sent to a Scottish regiment; and that, notwithstanding this request, they were sent to Plymouth and attached to the 3rd Battalion of the King's Own Regiment; and, under these circumstances, will he arrange that these Scottishmen may be given facilities to join regiments of their own nationality?
§ Mr. TENNANT
Instructions have been issued that the men referred to may transfer to Scottish regiments if they like.
