§ 94. Colonel YATE
asked the number of captains of the Royal Army Medical Corps who have received accelerated promotion to fill the vacancies created by the promo-lion of the ninety-seven majors to lieutenant-colonels, in addition to the fourteen captains promoted previous to 31st March, 1915?
§ Mr. TENNANT
The promotion of majors to lieutenant-colonels rank in the Royal Army Medical Corps does not necessarily create vacancies in the list of majors. Promotion to the latter rank is ordinarily by time service irrespective of numbers. Fifty-one captains have received accelerated promotion in addition to the fourteen mentioned and to others who were promoted after the usual regulation period of service.
