§ 13. Colonel Sir ARTHUR HOLBROOK
asked the Secretary of State for War 193 whether he will consider an amendment of the new Article, No. 627a, in the Royal Warrant, issued on 25th October, 1927, so as to include the 500 ex-officers who were serving on a normal engagement at the outbreak of war in August, 1914, and who were awarded only temporary commissions?
§ Sir A. HOLBROOK
May we take it that the new Article 627a is an admission on the part of the War Office of the injustice meted out in the War to the long-service men in the ranks in putting them in a different position from the short-service men?
