 First World War.com - Encyclopedia - U.K. Military Service Act
The introduction of the bill comprised a tacit acceptance on the part of the government that the previous approach to military service - the voluntary registration Derby Scheme - had failed to generate sufficient new recruits to stem the flow of losses on the various British battlefronts around the world.
Within four months a revised version of the Act was passed; this enabled the War Office in London to extend the service of time-expired servicemen and brought within the terms of the Act all men - regardless of marital status - from the ages of 18 to 41.
Men who had left military service on account of wounds or ill-health were to be re-examined to determine whether they were fit to resume service; and a revised list of reserved occupations was published.

 You Aren't Subject to the Draft or Selective Service Program
Under the Selective Service program, the requirement for able-bodied men and women to register for the draft in the United States is predicated on one's citizenship status.
the Selective Service Act applies only to "U.S. citizens" of Washington DC and its territories, and even then, whatever section of Title 50 that the government wants to assert must be demonstrated to be positive law, because the Title is not positive law.
Consequently, they are not the proper subject of nearly all acts of Congress, and certainly not to even a positive law that only has jurisdiction within the "federal zone".
