HC Deb 28 January 1918 vol 101 c1326W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the present Regulation, by which members of the Territorial Force before the War and officers of the New Army who may desire to join the Regular Army, and who have the approval of their commanding officer, can be modified so that they may retain in the Regular Army the rank which they held previous to the transfer?


Every case is considered on its merits, and officers are given rank in the Regular Army according to their qualifications and to their length of service as compared with that of the officers of the Regular unit to which they are transferred.
