HC Deb 25 March 1919 vol 114 c236W
Major-General Sir NEWTON MOORE

asked the Secretary of State for War when it is proposed to allow men of the Motor Transport sections with the Serbian Army to return to this country; and whether, in view of the fact that in the opinion of the medical officers these men, many of whom have been there for over two years, and have suffered from malaria and dysentery, are absolutely worn out, he will endeavour to expedite their return?


It is hoped that the British Mechanical Transport personnel with Mechanical Transport units attached to the Serbian Army will be completely withdrawn before the 1st May next. To what extent they will be required for the purposes of clearing up in the Balkans is still being considered, but they will be treated in this respect on exactly the same lines as Mechanical Transport personnel serving with British units in that theatre.
