Departmental clerical class, respectively?


The numbers of Lytton male entrants appointed on the result of Lytton examinations to the following classes are shown below:

Clerical class (general) 4,878
Admiralty Departmental clerical class 333
Air Ministry Departmental clerical class 167

In addition to the above figures 271 entrants have been appointed to the Customs and Excise Departmental clerical class and 67 from the War Office ex-soldier clerks' examination.
