Recruiting pass for James Walker
A recruiting pass for James Walker dated 25/02/1917. The pass is made of thin paper and has faded and ripped over time. The age of James Walker at recruitment was 18; he was just over 5ft tall.
A memo on the bottom of the pass reads: This pass must be given to each Recruit as soon as he takes his seat in the train, or embarks, with instructions to be careful to deliver it, on arrival at his destination, to the Sergeant who meets him: if from the distance to be travelled he receives subsistence beyond the date of starting, it should be stated.
It also states: It is requested that the bearer of this Pass, should he by accident miss his passage, may receive assistance, to forward him to his destination, from all police authorities, Railway officials, and Officers of steamships.
