Soldiers Discharge Question


Recommended Posts


I am familiar with the normal discharge remarks " Class Z. A.R." , " Para 392 (XVI)" , " Disembodied" etc. but I have never before seen " Section B. A.R.". Can any of you Pals please enlighten me as to it's meaning.

guess it is Section B of the Army Reserve - prewar this consisted of those men who were completing the balance of their service in the reserve i.e. they had done their 7 years with the colours and were doing their 5 on the Reserve, or whatever it was at the time.

I suppose the implication is that the man you're looking at was serving on a regular rather than a 'duration' engagement.
