HC Deb 12 July 1872 vol 212 c1040

asked the Secretary of State for War, If Troop Serjeants of Yeomanry who hold the Hythe certificate as Serjeant Instructors of Musketry are entitled to twopence a-day additional pay, which is allowed to Serjeants in the Rifle Volunteers under similar circumstances?


In 1870, the Westley-Richards carbine was given to the Yeomanry, and the adjutants and one serjeant of each regiment were sent to Hythe; and since that time all the regiments which had access to ranges have gone to the targets, but no addition has been made to the pay of the Serjeants. All these questions, however, will come under review in considering the new arrangements.
