HC Deb 28 May 1946 vol 423 cc172-3W
140. Brigadier Low

asked the Secretary of State for War whether those ranks in the Army who were enlisted for the emergency and now choose to take advantage of the new conditions of service and undertake a Regular engagement, are permitted to count towards service for pension the years which they have already served in the Army.

Mr. Lawson

Yes, Sir. On enlistment on a normal Regular engagement previous Colour, mobilised and embodied service either as an officer or other rank may be counted towards the prospective pension entitlement, subject to the usual conditions.
