HC Deb 29 June 1914 vol 64 c46W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any. Territorial non-commissioned officer or man can be excused from the annual training on production of a letter from his employer stating that the man's services cannot be spared?


The general rule is that an officer commanding may grant leave from the whole or any portion of the annual training on account of sickness or for any other urgent reason which he may consider sufficient. Representations to grant leave are often successfully made to employers.
