The Chargé in Greece ( Hall ) to the Secretary of State
[Received May 13—12:32 a.m.]
71. Department’s telegram number 36, April 11, 5 p.m. After great efforts I have succeeded in getting from Foreign Office statement in writing that men belonging to classes in Greek Army numbered 1916 to 1921, inclusive, will continue to be exempted if they have served in Army of United States during the Great War. These classes have never been demobilized and on that account exemption is granted. Other classes already called or to be called in the future will be considered as new mobilization to which this exemption does not apply.
