HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 cc694-5W
Viscount WOLMER

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the appeal of the late Lord Kitchener to old soldiers to rejoin the Army during the War, paragraph 1136 (e) of the Royal Warrant, 1914, makes soldiers who have completed seven years in the Army and five years in the Reserve without being called up in Section D, now, having served in the War, eligible to count the five years passed in the 1st Class Army Reserve towards the reckoning shown on Table V. of Army Council Instruction 325, of 1919?


Paragraph 4 of Table V. of the Army Order 325, of 1919, expressly lays down that qualifying service for pension under that table will be unforfeited Colour service only.
