HC Deb 01 May 1919 vol 115 c359W
Brigadier-General COLVIN

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will cause an inquiry to be made in the case of Private A. P. Tisdall, No. 18079, 6th Company, 5th Battalion, Royal Fusiliers, who was seriously ill with influenza and pneumonia at Chepstow Camp for three and a half weeks, being unconscious for three days; why his next-of-kin were not communicated with; and why no reply was sent by his commanding officer to a reply-paid telegram on 8th April and an express letter dispatched in April from Private Tisdall's father, who had not heard from his son for a month?


I am making inquiries, and will let my hon. and gallant Friend know the result as soon as possible.
