DISMISSAL OF SOLDIER
CHRISTADELPIANS , ACTION P.A. PALMERSTON N., this day. In the course of evidence given by Samuel J. Sullivan, of Wanganui a member of the Christadelphian Society, in support of an appeal by Douglas Wells, aged 34, sawmiller, of Riverton, before the No. 2 Revision Authority, which is hearing defaulters' appeals, witness said that when a young man from the Christadephian Church in Wanganui went overseas—he was killed in Greece— he was dismissed from the fellowship of the Church. Mr. J. A. Duffy (Crown representative): I have always known of God as kind and tolerant; I don't think He would approve of such action. Witness said he spoke with the full authority of the Church. He knew of no co-religionists who were serving overseas. Appellant said he originally enlisted in the Forestry Unit, and then for general Army service, but he required medical treatment while undergoing training. He met a girl whose parents were members of the Christadelphian Society. Subsequently he married her and became a Christadelphian himself. Decision was reserved.
