§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
The numbers classified as "A" are as follows:
25, 2, 1, 41, 8, 1, 7, 14, 5 and 17
This classification denotes that the officers concerned are considered to be "eminently fitted for early and special promotion." The reports on which the classification is based are not furnished for the whole staff, but only for those officers in each Department whose seniority brings them within range of consideration for promotion.
