HC Deb 04 February 1942 vol 377 c1202W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for War why Brigadier Drake-Brockman, a South African who served in the British Army in the last war, and commanded a tank brigade during the Battle of Britain, was dismissed from the Army?

Mr. Sandys

This officer was sentenced to be dismissed by a general court-martial which found him guilty on two charges of assault on German prisoners of war.
