HC Deb 13 April 1885 vol 296 c1465

asked the Secretary of State for War, Why, in the Official Army List, the names of Officers of Colonial Forces have not been corrected in the case of Canada since November 1883; of the Cape of Good Hope since December 1883; of New South Wales since January 1884; of New Zealand since February 1884; of Queensland since March 1884; of South Australia since December 1883; of Tasmania since December 1883; and of Victoria since January 1883; and, whether the War Office could obtain and publish more recent information respecting the Colonial Military Forces?


It is considered sufficient to correct yearly the lists of officers in the Colonial Forces, and the edition of the official quarterly Army List in which the corrected lists appear is in most cases that for April. In the Army List now printing the lists of Colonial officers for most of the Colonies will be corrected to December, 1884; but the Governments of Canada, Queensland, and Victoria have not yet sent in their corrections.
