HC Deb 07 March 1956 vol 549 c193W
37. Mr. N. Nicolson

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether, when there is a conflict of evidence between a man's Service documents and his birth certificate for the purpose of settling the date of his birth for pension questions, he will take the birth certificate as the conclusive document.

Mr. Birch

No. Recruits are warned that the date of birth which they give on first attestation will be accepted for all Service purposes.
