HC Deb 30 October 1918 vol 110 c1486W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, when officers of military age who have not been overseas and others who have reached the age for retirement, now serving in headquarters and other offices and on the staffs in various places at Home, will be relieved by the available wounded and disabled officers?


Whenever they can be spared, officers who have reached the age for retirement are relegated to unemployment. Every endeavour is made to employ wounded and disabled officers provided they are physically capable and professionally qualified for the duties they would be called upon to perform.
