When the time for military service has come, each man who is
abroad must present himself to the proper military authorities in
Russia, and this rule must be observed even though the case is one of
total incapacity to serve in the army. The Russian military authorities
reserve to themselves the right to decide with each man as to his
capacity or incapacity to serve in the army.

Russian Consular Officers have not the right to undertake and to
arrange for Russian subjects, the examination which passes them for
the military service of their country.

On February 27th 1915, the Russian War Office made the following
announcement :—

" Dating from March 14 (Old Style, March 1), 1915, the privilege
of not entering military service during the present war, which was
granted to Russian subjects on account of their living abroad, is now
revoked. This not only applies to those who will be called to join the
Army after the 1/14 March, but it also includes those who have been
called before the 1/14 March, inclusive. Thus after the 1/14 March
all Reservists and Militiamen who have been called upon to serve
up to that date must leave for Russia ; that is to say, all officers,
doctors, those connected with any department of the Army, and the
rank and file of the Reserve. Out of the number of Militiamen the
following soldiers are called to the colours :—

" (a) Commissioned Officers up to the age of 50.
" (b) Officers of the Staff and Generals up to the age of 55 inclusive.
" (c) Privates of the 1st Class of Militia who have not served in the
rank and file of the army when they were under the age of 35 years.

" Reservists and Militiamen who remain abroad after March 1/14,
although not having any reason for not returning to Russia, are liable
to be punished according to Russian law.

" Only those Reservists and Militiamen who on March 1/14 are
serving in the armies of those States which are allied to Russia, are not
under an obligation to present themselves for military service in

In accordance with the requirements of the war, new temporary
Regulations referring to Russian Military Service are promulgated ;
for instance, the Class 1897 has been already called to the colours.

CHAPTER XV.—Pensions Referring to Military
