The approved government

Veterans will now have the following opportunities for service, which in my opinion will absorb the bulk of those who are suitable for
military service: (a) With mobilized and immobilized units, depots, and training centres, provided they can comply with the physical and age requirements, (b) With veterans' home guard companies, (c) Various appointments for officers and other ranks at national defence headquarters and headquarters of districts as a result of the general expansion of our war effort. _
In the circumstances, it is felt that a unit such as is suggested should not be authorized at this time.
