CLAIMED BY TWO ARMIES

A pe­cu­liar case was brought be­fore a J.P. Court held at Lin­lith­gow on Thurs­day – Mr James Rus­sell on the bench. An­to­nio Ezzi, liv­ing at 3 South Street, Ar­madale, was charged with hav­ing failed to re­port for mil­i­tary ser­vice at Glen­corse when called upon, and on his be­half Mr J. C. Howie, so­lic­i­tor, Bathgate, ten­dered a plea of not guilty, on the grounds that the ac­cused is an Ital­ian, and there­fore not sub­ject to the Mil­i­tary Ser­vice Acts in this coun­try. Mr Kidd, J.P. Fis­cal, said the ac­cused was born in Cu­par-An­gus and he was a Bri­tish sub­ject. He un­der­stood the po­si­tion of the ac­cused to be that he had as a mat­ter of fact en­rolled him­self in the Ital­ian Army.
