HC Deb 01 May 1919 vol 115 c356W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the soldiers of the 100th Brigade, Royal Field Artillery, 22nd Division, Salonika Force, enlisted in 1914–15, who were asked on or about 15th March to volunteer for service in Russia, and declined to do so, have been since sent to Russian?


The Brigade referred to by my hon. and gallant Friend is serving in the Caucasus as part of their normal duty with the Army of Occupation. The men in question have not been sent to do the duty which, on being asked to volunteer, they refused to undertake, nor are they now serving in the area to which they would have been sent had they volunteered.
