HC Deb 02 July 1872 vol 212 c495

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether a Volunteer who goes into Camp with his Company or Battalion for the Autumn Manœuvres will be allowed to be relieved by one of his comrades after the first period is concluded, provided that he does not leave the Camp without permission, or until he is personally relieved?


, in reply, said that the rule with regard to the first period had been laid down on the recommendation of His Royal Highness the Field-Marshal Commanding-in-Chief to insure the success of the Manœuvres, and he could not enter into any engagement to make a wholesale exception to the rule.
