It is wrong to say there was no National Registration in 1915 (not 1914)

As far as I can see nobody said there was no National Registration in 1915.
As I pointed out there was National Registration in 1915

I never knew about 1915 Register. Was it complied when the government realised the war wasn't going to be over soon? Pity it was destroyed.

Some 29 million registration forms were said to have been filled out across England, Scotland and Wales. The forms were summarised and the summary details held centrally by the Registrar General. The actual forms were held locally. These forms can potentially be found in record offices all across the country, however, survival rates are patchy. https://blogs.ancestry.co.uk/ancestry/2016/08/19/using-wwi-registration-cards-to-trace-your-ancestors/
