40. Mr. Bernard Taylor
asked the Secretary of State for War why Dennis Moore, 4, Caudwell Drive, Mansfield, who was a member of the 6th Battalion, Sherwood Foresters, Home Guard, from September, 1942, until the stand down, has had his uniform, greatcoat and boots demanded from him.
Sir J. Griģģ
Dennis Moore was enrolled as a messenger, and as such he should only have drawn two armbands, a greatcoat, and a steel helmet. When the Home Guard was stood down he was entitled to keep the greatcoat, and if it has been withdrawn it will be reissued. As far as my information goes, he was not entitled to have boots or a uniform, and if he had them he was not entitled to retain them.
