HC Deb 27 February 1885 vol 294 c1607

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether, while so many officers are employed in Egypt, it would be desirable to relax the provisions of the Royal Warrant of the 28th July 1881, so as to allow Adjutants of Volunteer Corps to retain their posts for a time after they reach the ago of 55 years, when they are quite capable of performing their duties, and so avoid the necessity of removing officers of the Line from their regiments?


Only six Adjutants of Volunteers will be affected by the 55 years' Rule before the close of 1886. It is not considered necessary to mate any change in the Royal Warrant.
