Just to clarify. At the top of the typed letter it says he's not eligible under Army order no. 1V. This refers to the re-enlistment of men who hadn't been demobbed or put on the Z list. Officers & NCO's were offered it first. They were given a Bounty depending on how long they re-enlisted for. Could be 20, 40, 60.
Being a serving soldier made him eligible under this Order but was rejected because of his alien origin.
So risking his life for King & Country didn't count for anything.
