HC Deb 16 March 1876 vol 228 c67

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, Whether he intends to limit the number of Captains in the Royal Marine Artillery allowed to hold appointments in the Reserve Forces, and to take any steps to prevent officers escaping from their proper turn of service afloat by obtaining appointments just as they are approaching the top of the Foreign Service Roster?


in reply, said, that it had been decided to establish some such limit; but that the question as to what the precise limit should be was still under consideration.
