Looking for the subject of paras 207 and 204 of TA Regs 1929 if anyone can help please.
The 1939 reprint of the 1929 edition of the Manual of Military Law has a very brief reference to T.A. Regs 199-206 as being the various classes of discharge, but does not list them.
The narrative in the Manual at page 235 refers to the subject of regulation 207 as :
"A man of the Territorial Army may enter the Royal Navy or enlist into the Regular Army, the Militia ( Supplementary Reserve, Categories A and B only), the Royal Marines or the Royal Air Force, and, on final approval, is deemed to be discharged from the Territorial Army, but must return in good order the articles of clothing, &c., issued to him belonging to the Territorial Army. He is not, however, allowed to join the Royal Naval Reserve or the Army Reserve ( other than the Supplementary Reserve, Categories A or B.)"
That's very useful thank you and fits exactly with the circumstances. Most grateful.
Papiermache - I pass on the thanks of someone on another forum for whom I asked the question, it does indeed fit their subject, TA to regular discharge/enlistment.
Max, I am pleased to be of assistance, and thanks for telling me. One of these days I'll look at some of the files with the "Army Orders" and regulations at Kew.
