HC Deb 25 October 1916 vol 86 c1142W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many different kinds of forms have been used since the 1st August, 1914, up to the present date for the discharge of men from the military forces of the United Kingdom; and whether the discharged soldiers' claims to pension and compensation will vary according to the wording of the different forms of discharge in use at the moment when the man was discharged from the Army?


Two forms only have been used since 1st August, 1914, one for Regular soldiers and one for Territorial Force soldiers. The wording of the form has no effect on the question of pensions.
