HC Deb 08 July 1919 vol 117 c1597
33. Brigadier-General Sir HILL CHILD

asked the Secretary of State for War how many copies of the book "West and East with the E.F.C," by Captain E. Vredenburg, have been printed; what has been the total cost of producing this book and has it been paid for out of the profits of the Expeditionary Force Canteen; and whether Captain Vredenburg makes anything out of the book himself?


Twenty-one thousand, three hundred and twenty-three copies have been printed at a cost of £2,760 paid by the Expeditionary Force Canteens to the publishers. No payment out of Expeditionary Force Canteen Funds was made to Captain Vredenburg.


Was the expenditure of that money authorised by the Army Council?


I think it was one of the running expenses of the organisation.
