§ 59. Mr. SHEPHERD
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in the case of men reported as being unable to account for themselves, he has received inquiries from relatives or friends who hope they may be British soldiers or sailors who had been regarded as missing or presumed killed; and whether he will cause to be circulated in the Press detailed descriptions with photographs of any men so reported?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Sir Laming Worthington-Evans)
Cases are reported from time to time of men who are unable to account for themselves and who are believed to have served in the British Army, and these reports lead to many inquiries from the relatives of missing men. So far as I am aware there is only one such case which has not yet been cleared up. A description in this case, with photographs, has already been published in the Press, but although many inquiries have as a result been received, they have not led to the man's identification.
