CALLED-IIP GROUPS. NEW UNIFORMS FOR OLD CLOTHES THIS WEEK. The first drafts of Derby recruits, single men of Groups 2, 3, 4, 5, aged 19, 20, 21, and 22, are now completing their preparations for "rejoining their colours on Thursday. The scheme provides for the sending of a personal notice to each individual at his registered address stating when and where he should present himself. The first batch of these calls to the colours was posted on January 4, for the men who are to "join up" this week. "The general procedure is that the men will present themselves at their local recrui ting office," said a Scotland Yard recruiting official, "and, after a 'military examination' to weed out men with obvious defects, the recruits will be sent to a central recruiting office in order to be drafted to various depots in the usual way.. "Men who come in good clothes can have them sent home on receiving their uniform, but if they will present themselves in their oldest clothes, which can be discarded, it will save a good deal of trouble. "The men are beipg called up in batches instead of the whole four groups on the same day, in order to avoid congestion at the recruiting offices and depots." GROUP MEN'S UNHEARD CLAIMS. "It may be taken for granted," said an appeal tribunal official, "that a man will not have to join the colours this week if his claim, duly lodged, for postponement is still awaiting trial. The military representatives in each district will see to it that claims are decided before men are called up." "Quite a considerable number" was the answer of Mr Tennant in the House of Commons on being asked to atjate how many men had enlisted under the group system since it was reopened on January 10. I
