HC Deb 26 February 1918 vol 103 c1231
11. Major NEWMAN

asked the Under secretary of State for War whether the Army Council have now come to a decision to permit Home units to employ category men to act as bandsmen under certain conditions, and where the unit is already in possession of band instruments?


I am not quite clear as to what my hon. and gallant Friend means by "category men," but I am afraid that the man-power situation does not admit of men fit for general service being employed in bands at home. Comprehensive instructions regarding bands are, however, about to be issued.
