HC Deb 16 November 1916 vol 87 c1019W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Sydney Robjohns, No. 324 in the Military Register, Class No. 43, with the medical report Class C 1, has been passed for non-combatant service by the Battersea Local Tribunal, although the genuineness of his religious convictions was never doubted; and whether, seeing that this necessarily involves imprisonment in the case of a man holding these views, he can see his way to release him for work of national importance either under the Pelham Committee or under the Friends' Ambulance unit?


This man was granted exemption from combatant service, and an appeal against this was dismissed. In view of the tribunal's decision, nothing further can be done.
