HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c578W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many men who went to Italy in the spring of 1918 and were vaccinated contracted small-pox?


Two cases of smallpox were reported as occurring among the troops of the Italian Expeditionary Force during the year 1918. One was reported in January, and the other in April. I cannot say whether the latter went to Italy in the spring of 1918, nor whether the soldier was vaccinated.
