HC Deb 01 May 1919 vol 115 cc359-60W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether men discharged from the Army for breach of discipline thereby forfeit their right to a pension to which they would otherwise be entitled?


All part service for pension is lost when a soldier is discharged with ignominy or expressly on account of misconduct, or on conviction by the civil power, or on being sentenced to penal servitude, or for giving a false answer on attestation.
