HC Deb 25 March 1881 vol 259 c1931

asked the Secretary of State for War, If, under the new scheme of Army Re-organisation, it is intended to disturb the old Adjutants of Volunteers in their appointments, or if they will be permitted to continue to serve until sixty years of age, as laid down in Royal Warrant of 6th April 1874?


Sir, in reply to my hon. Friend, I have to say that the arrangements as to the term of service of Volunteer adjutants hardly come within the general plan of Army reorganization, which I have brought before the House; but my attention has been drawn to the advanced age of some of these meritorious officers, and I am considering the subject referred to in the Question.
