I am very concerned about the future welfare of the 18 and 19-year-olds of four and five years ago. Some of these lads left college one afternoon, were called up the next day and went into camp that evening, consequently they had no opportunity to learn professions or trades. We all realise that these boys—men now —will never be as fit, either mentally or bodily, to study or work with the same interest now or later, as they would have done several years ago. To my mind the future for this group doe.-; not appear bright, as even when compared ivilh married men their plight is worse, Men, both married and single, who left positions to serve their country were promised the same when they returned, but these 18-year o'ds have nothing except years of s'.udy and work to anticipate before they can even qualify for a position. Also, why shouldn't time served in forces count, regardless of where? PARENT.
