The following are the steps taken! by the W�r Office to ascertain ^jLliother '\ officers and men who have been report- i ed missing and prisoners of war, or, it not, whether any definite information is obtainable os to their fate: (I) The Commanding Officer. The officer commanding the unit, before making his report, ascertains as far as possible from the officers aud men present with the unit, whether any reliable evidence is forthcoming. If not, he reports the soldier missing. (Hr The BritiaU'hed Cross and Order of St. John. Lists ot the. missing are .supplied by the War Office to'lhe Enquiry Department of the Red Cross, 18 Carlton House Terrace, London. ' The representatives ot this body are given, facilities at the hospitals and camps at home and overseas to collect information^ from wounded soldiers. Information so coll^(:t,nd. If likely to establish the .fate of the officer or man, is passed to the'War Oflice and In the case ot the rank and file is taken up officially without request from relatives. In the case of ofUcisrs these reports it sufficiently definite are also investigated, but the initiative is as a rule left to the relatives, since it is found that the relatives have in many cases, received more' reliable information direct from the officers ot the unit. Enquiries addressed to 18 Carlton House Terrace, London, S. W. I., will also be answered direct, and all reliable information collected will be communicated. The enquiry should give the name. Christian name; regimental number, regiment, battalion, company or platoon,'and dale ot casualty. For Royal Artillery the Battery Is necessary, and for the Royal Engineers and Army Service Corps the Company or other unit. (ill) Enquiries in Germany and other enemy countries. Full lists of the missing are pro-pared In the War Ofnco, and a large number ot copies sent monthly to the Foreign Office for transmission through the good offices of the Netherlands Government to Germany and to other enemy countries. These lists are circulated through prisoners of war camps and hospitals and are accompanied by forms on which evidence can be furnished regarding officers and men whoso names are on the list. By this means in an appreciable number o{ cases, information has been received showing what, has been the fate ot the missing. (IV) General remarks. It will be seen that by these arrangements an endeavor is .made to cover broadly whole Held of possible witnesses of the miif.iing .soldier's fate, and If he has unfortunately mot his death upon the bayieflold to place his relatives in possessipn ot dellillte information upon the subject. It on the other hand he is In tact a prisoner ot war, news Is in the great majority of cases received from him direct In the first instance by moaiie ot letters addressed to his relatives. In a few cases his name first appears upon an official Gcrraati list, but unfortunately in a number of these, the list shows that he has died In hospital, a few days after capture. In all hut very exceptional cases, the news of his being a prisoner comes through before there would have been time tor an enquiry to be sent to Germany, and for an answer to he received.
