HC Deb 15 December 1925 vol 189 c1234W

asked the Secretary of State for War how many of the men serving in the forces evacuated from Cologne have married German wives; how many of these are on the married strength of their regiments; and whether any arrangements will be made for the wives of men married without permission to be transferred to the places where their husbands are, or will be, located?

Captain KING

The number of men serving with the forces now leaving Cologne who have married German wives is 248, of whom 81 are on the married quarters roll. The answer to the last part of the question is in the affirmative; the men and their wives will be brought to England.
