HC Deb 06 February 1945 vol 407 c1887
43. General Sir George Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether soldiers, discharged as unfit for further service from the Army during the summer months but detained in hospital until the winter, are given greatcoats on leaving hospital or whether they are given civilian clothing on the summer scale.

Sir J. Grigg

The old scale of clothing issued to men discharged from the Army included no greatcoat except for men discharged during the winter on medical grounds. But the new scale which has been in issue since the middle of last October provides a raincoat for all men irrespective of the time of the year when they are discharged.
