HC Deb 17 May 1916 vol 82 c1512

asked whether a boy under the age of nineteen preparing for entry into Woolwich or Sandhurst is liable to be called up for enlistment under the Military Service Act, or will he be allowed to finish his course of study and allowed to remain unenlisted until he knows the result of his examination?


A boy who can produce a certificate from his headmaster stating that he is a bonâ fide candidate for admission to Woolwich or Sandhurst or one the Indian Training Colleges, and that he has a reasonable chance of success at the Army Entrance Examination, will not be called up to the Colours pending the announcement of the result of the examination.
