HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1455
64. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether he can now state what decision has been come to with respect to the restoration to their former rank, irrespective of their medical category, of warrant officers and non-commissioned officers recalled to the Colours under the last Military Service Act?


Generally speaking, ex-warrant officers and ex-non-commissioned officers on re-enlistment are given the substantive rank which they held at the time of their discharge from the Army. There are, however, certain exceptions, which are explained fully in the instructions which have been issued on the subject, and of which I am sending copies to my hon. and gallant Friend.
