HC Deb 30 July 1946 vol 426 c144W
115. Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in order to facilitate the re-raising in their localities of T.A. units which have been placed in a state of suspended animation, and for the purpose of keeping touch with former members of these units, he will authorise and encourage the formation in each case of an association of former members who might be willing to again come forward in the event of the unit being re-raised as part of a postwar T.A.

Mr. Lawson

Yes, Sir. Territorial Army Associations have been encouraged to take all possible interest both in the units placed in suspended animation and in the old members of the Territorial Army. The formation of clubs has been represented to the Associations and I understand they are being organised as far as possible. Members of the old Territorial Army, who are eligible to volunteer for the new Territorial Army, will be of geat value should they offer their services in the re-formation of the Territorial Army.
