HC Deb 10 July 1919 vol 117 c2039W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that A. C. 2 Charles H. Bailer, No. 276493, Elope Squadron, Royal Air Force, North Russian Relief Expedition, was sent to Russia against his wish, and that he is not yet nineteen years of age; that such action is a violation of all promises made as to volunteers and age of those going overseas; and will he cable at once for this youth's return?
