HC Deb 28 March 1946 vol 421 c97W
Lieut.-Colonel Sham

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury why civil servants are still engaged in compiling military histories of the 1914–18 war; and whether this work will now be terminated.

Mr. Glenvil Hall:

Work on the Official Military History of the War of 1914–18 is now virtually completed. Of the volumes not already published all but one are either in the press or ready for press. Only one historian is now engaged on this work, with the part time assistance of five clerical officers.
