HC Deb 16 May 1916 vol 82 cc1335-6
20. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the War Office has any information regarding the condition of the Sherwood Foresters wounded in the street fighting in Dublin?


Arrangements have been made for all dangerous and serious cases to be reported to the War Office for communication to the next-of-kin. So far only one Sherwood Forester has appeared on the dangerous list and one on the serious list.

Sir J. D. REES

Is the description of the rebellion as a "feather-head" rebellion endorsed at the War Office, seeing the crushing casualties that have been suffered?


That is a question for debate.
