HC Deb 10 May 1916 vol 82 cc652-3
72. Sir C. HENRY

asked what arrangements have been made for men of all ranks who have been discharged from the Army on account of medical unfitness to receive a distinctive badge so as to indicate that during the War they have been engaged on military duty?


I am unable at present to add anything to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for the Wirral Division of Cheshire on the 28th March.

74. Mr. WARDLE

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether men attested under the group system who, in anticipation and before they have been actually called up, have been medically examined by the medical board at the headquarters of the recruiting area and rejected by such board as unfit for any service will, under Clause 3 (2) of the Military Service Bill, 1916, be notified that they need not again present themselves for medical examination?


Men rejected and unfit for any form of military service are given a card showing that they have been found unfit. They will not be again called up.
