South Canterbury Recruiting District - Second Division Nov. 1917.

Class A - Reservists:  married men who have no children or who failed to provide adequate maintenance for their children.

Dominion, 11 September 1917, Page 4 THE SECOND DIVISION
STRENGTH OF THE CLASSES. The first ballot in the Second Division is likely to take place about the end or next month. The Defence authorities proposed originally to hold it at the middle of the month, but the classification of the division, which is now proceeding, is proving a lengthy business. It appears that there are 19,000 reservists in Class A (married men without children), and from 20,000 to 25,000 men each in Classes B (one child), C (two children), D (three children), and E (four children). Class A contains a certain number of men who have been posted there as doubtful, they having omitted to state in their registration forms whether or not they had any children. But there is reason to believe that this class will provide two drafts, and it might possibly provide three with the addition of young men just reaching military age. Over 400 young men reach the age of twenty years and are posted to the First Division every month. Provision is to be made for passing these men direct into the forces, if they are medically fit, after the exhaustion of the First Division, and the recruits from this source will reduce the demand upon the Second Division.

The ratio in drawing upon the Second Division is to be four to one, that is, four names drawn for each recruit actually required. If this proves to be too low it will he increased. The proportion of fit men in the early classes, of the Second Division probably is higher than in the last few thousands of the First Division, from which a very large number of fit men has been withdrawn by voluntary enlistment. The amendment to be made this session to the Military Service Act will provide for the calling up without ballot of youths reaching military age and of classes or remainders of classes when the number of men contained does not exceed the number required. Thus, if a balance from Class A, with the youths reaching military age, failed to provide a complete reinforcement, they might all be called up without ballot, and then a ballot taken in Class B to the shortage. The district system, it is understood, is to be dropped, in connection with the Second Division, owing to the comparative smallness of the classes. Instead of drawing a quota from each district, the Defence authorities will treat the Dominion as one district.
