HC Deb 05 August 1918 vol 109 c922
90. Sir J. SPEAR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether captains of the Special Reserve serving in Salonika or other Eastern theatres of war are promoted to the rank of major on the completion of fifteen years' service in the same manner as all other Infantry captains?


Promotion to the rank of major is not by time in the Special Reserve, and a captain is only promoted major to fill a vacancy.
