HC Deb 30 March 1914 vol 60 c858W

asked the Secretary for War if he can hold out any hope that non-commissioned officers and men of the Regular Army will, in the near future, be permitted to count their years of service with the Colours in all cases, where they retire from the Army with a good character but without a pension, to count for pension if they subsequently join any of the less onerous services of the Crown, such as the Civil Service?


I am afraid I am not in a position to make any statement on this subject.
