(Untitled), 30 Jun 1914

Reference Code: GBR/0014/CHAR 13/29/67-68

Scope and Contents

Minute by WSC [First Lord of the Admiralty] on boys accepted by the Royal Navy from Training Ships, stating that he felt that three years' good character from one of these ships should be sufficient to delete all previous records, and that there was no need for application to the police. WSC comments that it was wrong to inflict "life disabilities on children" as in many cases boys were committed to reformatories and industrial schools for offences like sleeping out, or because magistrates felt that "their homes were such that they would not be properly taken care of". [Carbon].
