Drafts and returning wounded

Recommended Posts

Would recuperated soldiers (Privates not Officers) returning to their unit be included in a joining draft of O.R.? 
Many thanks for any response.

Yes.

 

Recovered sick/wounded would be posted to a Regimental Depot and or Reserve Battalion where they would be joined by newly trained recruits. 

 

A reinforcement draft could be made up of a mixture of recovered wounded/sick, with previous Expeditionary Force service, and the newly trained.
