HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 cc1978-9W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the arrangement with regard to the promotion of supplementary officers of the Special Reserve pari passu with other officers of the Special Reserve already announced by him is misunderstood by some commanding officers, who recommend for promotion officers of their own reserve battalion who are junior to such supplementary officers; and if he will take steps to make the new arrangement generally known by Army Order?


If any commanding officer has any doubt as to how promotions should be made in the case of Special Reserve officers, supplementary or otherwise, he should refer to the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief. Full instructions have been issued to these officers.
