Letter from Captain M M Shattock to Rifleman William Eve, August 1914

The letter states that Eve's name is on the Recruits' Waiting List for The Queen's Westminster Rifles and asks to inform him whether he is willing to go on Foreign Service. The back side of the form contains a written message which reads: 'Sir, I stated my willingness to go on Foreign Service when at Headquarters and I now confirm it. Yours faithfully W J Eve.'

In the event of war Territorials like Eve could be called upon for full-time service. They were not obliged to serve overseas, but when asked to do so in August 1914, the vast majority agreed to go.

One of 27 items relating to Second Lieutenant William Francis Eve, 6th (City of London) Bn, The London Regiment, formerly 1/16th (County of London Bn), The London Regiment (Queen's Westminster Rifles), 1914-1920.
