Furlough for private soldiers during First World War.

Postby doddie » Thu May 22, 2014 12:36 pm

Trying to find out if there was a standard length of time allowed for furlough leave for ordinary ranks during the First World War. A relative of mine who had been serving with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in France was transferred to the Royal Engineers for a home posting in July of 1917. I know, from a short newspaper clipping, that he was on furlough directly before starting service with the R.E. in Chatham. I am going to be writing up the story of my relative's service during the First World War and want to make sure I get the timeline as acuurate as I possibly can.

Regards
