HC Deb 03 July 1856 vol 143 c265

said, he wished to ask a question of the First Lord of the Admiralty, who stated, some time ago, that all the troops would have left the Crimea by the 30th of June. He wanted to know if that was likely to be the case?


said, the third battalion of the Grenadier Guards were coming home by the Princess Royal. Before he left the Admiralty a telegraphic despatch was received that she had made her signal. The whole of the forces had not yet left the Crimea, but a portion of them were engaged in taking up the railway. Every other man was brought away. Ample transport was there long before the 30th June, and was now waiting till the troops were ready to come away.
