Date1 March 1916
DescriptionInforms the recipient that his case does not seem to fall under the category of analytical, research or consulting chemist, and therefore the Royal Society does not have the power to intervene in his military service. However, if he were to fill in the enclosed form and indicate that he would be willing to work in munitions, then his name would be put on the register that the Society is forming for that purpose [not enclosed].
