The Soldier's Rights. Litixe-Ksows Privileges Britain Bestows upo.v Hbk Fighting Men. Every British soldier on the army list—flora lielil marshall down to the last-joined recruit—enjoys certain de finite and special privileges not shar ed by civilians. These privileges uf ' feet him in various ways. To begin with, no soldier—what ever his rank—can be sued for tvny debt or damages under £30 in value. Consequently, if an accomodating | broker permits Pte Atkins to dabble ! on the Stock Exchange to this am ; onnt, ho cannot recover his money in : the event of a loss. Similarly, it is • no good bringing a libel action against him unless the damages claimed ex ceed £29/19/11^. I If an officer occupies Government I quarters he does not have ta pay any ! local rates in respect of his house. | This is because such a building is ' held to be occupied by the Crown, I and the Crown is always exempt from local lates.
