To all,

IIRC the British did take action to correct the Infantry replacement shortage. Didn’t they retire and or take Naval vessels out of service and transfer the crews to the British Army. I recall reading that somewhere, don’t recall if it was successful.

Hi Orwell1984,

A first rate link. Many thanks. I hope posters follow it through to the documents via "Preview an image of this record".
