A file containing drafts of a leaflet issued by the Ministry of Labour explaining the Military Training Act 1939. Documents in the file include official correspondence on the leaflet; multiple drafts of the leaflet; and a final copy of the leaflet. Topics covered by the leaflet include the classes which are exempt from being called up for military training; the registration process; medical examinations to assess health and fitness; and the posting of recruits to military units. Other topics discussed include circumstances under which call-up can be postponed; the role of Military Training (Hardship) Committees; the role of employers in the reinstatement of recruits into civil employment; and the process of dealing with conscientious objectors, including the circumstances under which this can be pursued. An entry in the correspondence notes that the act, and therefore the leaflet, were superseded on the passing of the National Service (Armed Forces) Act 1939.
