Cormorant Posted 31 October , 2013 Share Posted 31 October , 2013 The first Military Service Act removed the Home Service option for single Territorials. I have read somewhere that this meant that all would have had to take the IS obligation by 2 March 1916; if they didn't done so then officers would be forced to resign and soldiers would be discharged, thus rendering them all liable for conscription. This would have caused administrative chaos and so far I have been unable to find any evidence of it actually happening. So my questions are: does anyone have any evidence of large numbers of single TF soldiers, or indeed any single TF soldiers, taking the IS obligation between 27 January and 2 March 1916? does anyone have any evidence of single HS only TF soldiers being discharged after 2 March 1916? have I missed a relevant administrative instruction? Grateful for any help! To find single TF(HS) soldiers discharged in March 1916 and then conscripted would be gold dust! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
