PROCLAMATEON
GEORGE the FIFTH, by the Grace of God of the United Kingdom of
Great Britain and Ireland and of the British Dominions beyond the
Seas, KING, Defender of the Faith, Emperor of India.
To all to whom these presents shall come or whom the same may in any
wise concern,���GREETING :
A Proclamation of conditional amnesty respecting men belonging to
Glass 1 under the Military Service Act, 1917, who have disobeyed our
Proclamation of 13th October, 1917, or their orders to report for duty,
or are deserters or absent without leave from the Canadian Expeditionary Force.
E. L. NEWCOMBE
Deputy Minister nf .In-'tice
('inmrlu.
'  J at
WHEREAS considerable numbers of men
belonging to Class I under our Military Service Act, 1917, called out on active service in
our Canadian Expeditionary Force for vhe
defence of Canada under Our Proclamation
of 13th October, 1917, although they have thus
become by law soldiers enlisted in thc Military
Service of Canada,
Have failed to repoit for duty as lawfully
required of theni under the said Military Service Act and the regulations thereunder, including the Order in Council duly passed on
April 20 last,
Or have deserted,
Or absented themselves without leave
from our Canadian Expeditionary Force,
And it is represented that the very serious
and unfortunate situation in which these men
find themselves is due in many cases to the
fact that, notwithstanding thc information and
warning contained in Our Proclamation aforesaid, they have misunderstood their duty or
obligation, or have been misled by the advice
of ill-disposed, disloyal or seditious persons.
AND WHEREAS we desire, if possible, to
avoid the infliction of the heavy penalties which
the law imposes for the offences of which these
soldiers have thus been guilty, nnd to afford
them an opportunity within a limited time to
report and make their services available in Our
Canadian Expeditionary Force as is by law
their bounden duty, and as is necessary for the
defence of Our Dominion of Canada.
NOW KNOW YE that we in the exercise
of Our powers, and of Our "ood will and
pleasure in that behalf, do hereby proclaim and
declare and cause to be published and made
known THAT THE PENALTIES OF THE
LAW WILL NOT BE IMPOSED OR
EXACTED as against the men wlio belong
to Class 1 under Our Military Servbe Act,
1917, and who have disobeyed Our Proclamation aforesaid ; or who have received notice
from any of Our registrars or deputy registers
to report for duty on a day now past and have
failed so to report ; or who, having reported
and obtained leave of absence, have failed to
report at the expiry of their leave, or have
become deserters from Our Expeditionary
Force, PROVIDED THEY REPORT FOR
DUTY ON OR BEFORE THE TWENTY
FOURTH DAY OF AUGUST 1918.
AND WE DO HEREBY STRICTLY
WARN AND SOLEMNLY IMPRESS
UPON ALL SUCH MEN, and as well those
who employ, harbour, conceal or assist them
in their disobedience, that, if they persist in
their failure to report, absence or desertion
until the expiry of the last mentioned day,
they will be pursued and punished with all the
rigour and severity of the law, SUBJECT TO
THE JUDGMENT OF OUR COURTS
MARTIAL WHICH WILL BE CONVENED TO TRY SUCH CASES or other
competent tribunals: and also that those who
employ, harbour, conceal or assist such men
will be held strictly accountable as offenders
and subject to the pains, penalties and forfeitures in that behalf by law provided for their
said offence. tf
Provided however that nothing contained
in this Our Proclamation is intended to release
the men aforesaid from their obligation to
report for duty as soon as possible or to grant
them immunity from arrest or detention in the
meantime for the purpose of compelling them
to perform their military duty; Our intention
being merely to forego or remit the penalties
heretofore incurred for failure to report,
absence without leave or desertion incurred by
those men of the description aforesaid who
shall be in the proper discharge of their military
duties on or before the said twenty-fourth day
of August, 1918.
Of all of which Our loving subjects and all
others whom these presents may concern are
hereby required to take notice and govern
themselves accordingly.
IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, We have cauted these
Cor Letters to be made Patent, and the Great Seal
of Canada to be hereunto affixed. Witnew: Our
Right Trusty and Right Entirely Beloved Couiin
