Remembered Today:

Serv. Recs - the offence of "Hest(?) to obey and order"


Recommended Posts

The Capt. gives a chap 3 days confined to barracks for this offence, has he refused the order twice or something ? Meaning of hest in this context?

thanks, Dave

 Hest is an old word for (failure) to carry out or obey.


I thought it was short for behest

He was at Belton Park in May 1915
