HC Deb 15 July 1919 vol 118 c202
38. Major MALONE

asked the Secretary for War whether he will issue instructions to commanding officers to grant special leave to as many soldiers and sailors as possible so as to enable them to attend Peace celebrations at their own homes on the 19th July?

Captain GUEST

Orders have been issued by the Field-Marshal Commanding-in-Chief the Forces in Great Britain that all ranks serving at home who are not taking part in Peace processions on Saturday next and who can be spared should be given a holiday on that day.
