§ SIR JOSEPH M'KENNA
asked the Secretary of State for War, If Her Majesty's Government have any intention to recommend for some recognition, distinction, or honour, Lieutenant Colonel Campbell Walker, who first, and so far back as 1865, recommended and specified in detail a system of armoured Railway trains, such as have since been successfully used in the Egyptian Campaign of last year?
THE MARQUESS OF HARTINGTON
Sir, there is no trace in the records of the War Department of any proposal of the description referred to having been made by Lieutenant Colonel Campbell Walker in 1865, or at any other period. If, however, the hon. Member can refer me to any statement which would throw light upon the matter, I will make further inquiries.
