 (Lancs.).—No direct commissions in the A.S.C., M.T., are now being granted. You must apply through the War Office for papers in the usual way. If accepted, you will have to spend an initial period in an 0.T.C., and then begin as a 2nd lieutenant. Had this matter come before us three or four months ago, we should have been able to return a different reply. We presume you are attested.
Joining the A.S.C.. M.T.
 (Pater)..—The enly course for your son to follow, is to apply in the ordinary way, if for a commission direct to the Secretary, War Office, S.W., in order to get the necessary papers, and if in the ranks at any recruiting office. No special facilities are now afforded. Recruiting for the ranks is temporarily closed, but it is likely to be reopened within a fortnight. It is impossible to state the changes which will follow the closing of Lord Derby's scheme. B52
