HC Deb 29 April 1879 vol 245 c1403

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is the case that Captains of Cavalry on becoming Brevet Majors receive no extra pay, while Brevet Majors of the Line draw 2s. per diem; and, whether in the case of Yeomanry Adjutants Brevet Majors might be allowed to draw this sum?


, in reply, said, it was true that Brevet Majors of the Line drew 2s. per day extra pay for the purpose of enabling them to provide themselves with horses when required to be mounted. Captains of Cavalry being already mounted, received no extra pay, and the same rule applied to the case of Yeomanry Adjutants.
