§ 25. Colonel YATE
asked whether officers who have been compulsorily retained in the Service without the retired pay to which they were entitled have been recently gazetted out and offered re-employment on the pay of their rank, but without their retired pay; and, if so, whether these officers will be placed on the same footing as the re-called officer and be permitted to draw their retired pay?
§ Mr. FORSTER
An officer retained in the Service is not entitled to retired pay. But I understand my hon. and gallant Friend to refer to cases in which officers retired during the War have been warned that, if voluntarily re-employed, they will not be entitled to claim full pay in addition to retired pay. This is in accordance with the Royal Warrant published as Army Order 235 of August last.
§ Colonel YATE
Then I understand that they will be allowed to draw their retired pay whatever extra is given?
