HC Deb 03 July 1919 vol 117 c1187W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Sapper Richard Morris, No. 434149, Royal Engineers (Wireless Section), Elope, North Russian Expeditionary Force, who enlisted on 30th October, 1914, is still retained with the Dwina force, North Russia; and whether he will issue instructions for the demobilisation of Sapper Morris and other 1914 men who are serving overseas?


It is not at present possible to extend to the troops serving in North Russia the provisions of the recent Army Order, providing for the release of men eligible under Army Order 55 of 1919. The situation, however, of men serving in that Force has not been lost sight of. It is regretted that Sapper Morris cannot be released until demobilisation is opened for the North Russia force.
