HC Deb 20 March 1918 vol 104 cc963-4
31. Mr. JOWETT

asked the Under secretary of State for War if, with a view to discharge from the Army or transfer to Home service, he is willing to consider the case of a soldier who has already served in France and been wounded there and has been under hospital treatment for seven months for dysentery, having regard to the circumstances that the soldier's mother has been for many years an invalid, that the soldier's two brothers were both killed in action in one and the same week, and that the soldier's father has suffered a complete breakdown and will probably never be able to work again as a result of the shock caused by the death of two of his three sons in one week?


Yes, Sir; such a case would receive sympathetic consideration.
