HC Deb 09 July 1919 vol 117 cc1835-6W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Sergeant L. Birrell, No. 6073, Gordon Highlanders, at present residing at 61, Alexandria Road, Aldershot, was in South Africa when the Armistice was signed; that he applied to be demobilised in South Africa as he had good employment open there; that he was refused this permission, and brought home for demobilisation; and whether he will now be given a passage to South Africa to enable him to obtain the employment he has accepted?


Inquiries will be made and I will inform my Noble Friend of the result as early as possible.
