HC Deb 24 March 1885 vol 296 cc386-7

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, From what ships the men composing the Naval Brigade now with Lord Wolseley were selected; and, whether their places on board these ships have since been filled up; and, if not, for what reason?


The men composing the Naval Brigade appear to have been taken from the Alexandra, Inflexible, Superb, Monarch, Invincible, and Témé-raire. The Commander-in-Chief selected them. Supernumeraries have been sent from home to fill the places of these men.
