HC Deb 17 February 1881 vol 258 c1074

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether it is correct that only one troop of the 15th Hussars is mounted; and, if that is not correct, if he can state whether all or what proportion of the regiment is mounted?


My hon. and gallant Friend will be glad to hear that all the 15th Hussars were mounted within a fortnight of their disembarkation. In reply to his further Question, I have to say that I have received to-day the following telegram from Sir Evelyn Wood, dated Ladysmith, 10.55 this morning:— Have crossed Ingagane River with 60th, 92nd, 2 squadrons loth Hussars, 50 men Naval Brigade, and two naval guns.
