HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1512
72 Colonel CRAIG

asked the Under-Sec retary of State for War the present position of officers in school Officers' Training Corps under the Military Service Bill; whether they will still be exempted from joining the Army under the recent War Office Regulation or whether they will be immediately liable for service?


Officers in the Officers' Training Corps have the same liability for service as other officers of the Special Reserve or Territorial Force. Their services are at the disposal of the Army Council.

Those whose ages bring them within the provisions of the Military Service Act have been required to undertake the Imperial Service obligation (A.F. E624) in order to retain their commissions.

I am not aware of any War Office Regulation other than that I have just indicated.
