TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Albert Riley Esquire; Closeburn, Dumfrieshire
Date28 February 1916
DescriptionInforms Albert Riley Esquire that if he can satisfy the Royal Society Committee of his qualifications as an analytical, consulting or research chemist, then he would be placed on the Reserved Occupations List. Explains that if Mr. Riley has already attested, he needs to approach his Local Tribunal who would in turn get in touch with the Royal Society. If Mr Riley has not yet attested he must obtain a certificate of recommendation from the Society, for which the Society will need to see a full statement of his chemical qualifications.
