HC Deb 07 July 1879 vol 247 cc1718-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether he will state the precise position of the late Prince Imperial in, or in connection with, Her Majesty's Army at the time of his death; and, whether he will give the name and rank of the Officer by whom the Prince was detailed on the 1st of Juno for the specific duty in the performance of which he lost his life, as stated in Lord Chelmsford's despatch?


I am sorry to say I must still repeat the same answer which I gave to my hon. Friend the other day. I have not received any information which will justify me in giving a definite answer on these points.
