HC Deb 30 October 1919 vol 120 cc908-9W
Major NALL

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will accelerate promotion in the Regular Army by immediately placing on retired pay all field officers who have never commanded a battalion in the field, never been overseas, been sent back from expeditionary forces with adverse reports, and have not had twelve months' active service since 1914?


The Army Council have already under consideration the war records of Regular field officers, and all those who have shown themselves to be unfitted for the duties of their rank are being called upon to resign their commissions or to retire.
