§ 33. Mr. GILBERT
asked the Home Secretary what were the grounds for con- 636 sidering that Police Constable William Jellis, who was invalided out of the Metropolitan Police Force in 1918 as a result of injuries received from a bomb dropped by enemy aircraft, was regarded as being off duty at the time of the explosion, having regard to the fact that he was on reserve duty until the air raid was over?
§ Major BAIRD
This case was carefully investigated by a board who reported that the constable was at home off duty when the explosion occurred, that he had not been called up for duty owing to the condition of his own and his wife's health, and that no person received personal injury from the explosion in question.
