HC Deb 28 May 1857 vol 145 c930

asked the Under Secretary for War whether the Government will allow the sons of those adjutants of militia, who are retired officers of the line, to be admitted to the military schools on the same terms as the sons of officers of the army?


said, in reply, that the officers to whom the noble Lord had alluded, had voluntarily retired on half-pay, or had received the difference, or had sold their commissions. In either of those cases they would not be entitled to admission to the military schools on the same footing as officers of the army. In other cases their sons would be entitled to admission the same as those of officers of the army.
