HC Deb 13 July 1916 vol 84 c533
90. Mr. G. LAMBERT

asked the Secretary of State for War whether Territorials of the l/6th Devon Regiment, who have served for nearly two years on the station of Lahore and in the campaign in Mesopotamia, and are now time-expired, though retained in the Army under the Military Service Act, can be returned home and employed on military duty here?


I regret that military exigencies do not admit of this proposal being carried out, but I can assure my right hon. Friend that the good service these men have given and are giving is fully appreciated.


Has any arrangement been made for bringing from Mesopotamia Territorials or Regulars who have fallen sick there after months of service?


I trust my hon. Friend will give me notice of that.
