National Service (Armed Forces) Act 1939

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The National Service (Armed Forces) Act 1939 was enacted by the Parliament of the United Kingdom on 3 September 1939, the day the United Kingdom declared war on Germany at the start of the Second World War.[1] It superseded the Military Training Act 1939 (passed in May of that year) and enforced full conscription on all male British subjects between 18 and 41 who were UK residents.[2] It was continued in a modified form in peacetime by the National Service Act 1948.
