HC Deb 15 March 1916 vol 80 c2072
27. Colonel YATE

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether officers of the Reserve of Officers, including the Royal Army Medical Corps, who were recalled on mobilisation have now been given promotion according to their seniority?


The reply would be in the affirmative, subject to the qualification that the officers must have complied with the conditions laid down—i.e., that promotion is given when an officer comes to the top of the list of his rank, his seniority being counted from the first day of mobilisation.
