HC Deb 10 March 1942 vol 378 c915
29. Mr. Mander for

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War the number of individuals employed by the British Red Cross Society in hospitals overseas in making inquiries with regard to missing soldiers?

Mr. Sandys

The primary responsibility for tracing missing soldiers, in so far as this work has to be carried out overseas, rests with the local military authorities. Full particulars of our organisation for tracing missing soldiers were given in my reply to a Question on 19 th December last, of which I will send my hon. Friend a copy.
