TitleCopy letter from [Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society]; to [an unknown University Student]
Date7 January 1916
DescriptionExplains the powers that the Society has with regard to the question of enlistment in the war. It has power to issue war badges to approved persons who are engaged in scientific work in connection with the war, and the power to confirm or deny the enlistment of analytical chemists. Suggests that the recipient's case does not fall within either category, and that they might be better placed to approach the Board of Education who have lately issued a memorandum upon the subject of advanced University students.
