HC Deb 07 November 1916 vol 87 c15

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Private C. Keen, No. 20212, 23rd Middlesex Regiment, was awarded non-combatant service by the Middlesex Appeal Tribunal at the Guildhall, Westminster, that this decision has been ignored by the military authorities, and that the man is now in France expecting to be ordered to do the work of a combatant soldier; and what action he proposes to take to insist that the certificate of the tribunal is acted upon?


Instructions have already been issued for this man to be transferred to the Non-Combatant Corps.
