Refugee Companies Formed in British Corps

Download PDF for this date

Special refugee companies of the new Army Pioneer Corps are being formed in one of the refugee internment camps because of the great number of refugees asking to join. A special recruiting office opened today at Bloomsbury House. Every effort is made to conceal the identity of refugee volunteers to prevent Nazi reprisals against their relatives living in Germany.
