HC Deb 26 February 1919 vol 112 cc1782-3W
Lieutennt-Colonel STANLEY

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he has had brought to his notice that Sergeant T. Reynolds, No. T.R. 4/28062, 53rd Welsh Regiment (late of the Loyal North Lancashire Regiment), was convicted by court-martial in 1915 of embezzlement and sentenced to be reduced to the ranks and to be imprisoned for six months; that a confession has since been received from another man that he was guilty of the crime, and that Sergeant Reynolds was innocent of the charge; and whether he will take steps to have the conviction quashed and the record of it expunged from Sergeant Reynolds's documents?

Captain GUEST

I am making inquiries, and will communicate with my hon. and gallant Friend as soon as I am in a position to do so.
