HC Deb 06 May 1919 vol 115 c767W
Captain R. TERRELL

asked the Secretary of State for War what are the Regulations governing the eligibility for demobilisation of men who are inmates of military hospitals for fixed periods; and whether these Regulations only apply to conditions that existed before 1st February, 1919?


Army Order 55 of 1919 governs the eligibility of all men for demobilisation. If a man has been in hospital twenty-eight days or longer, and he is eligible for demobilisation under this Army Order, he is demobilised from hospital. If not eligible, he is returned to his unit, unless he is passed as unfit for further service, when he is discharged.
