HC Deb 04 June 1888 vol 326 c1016
MR. O. V. MORGAN (Battersea)

asked the Secretary of State for War, Whether a Memorandum has been issued to officers of the Auxiliary Forces attached to the 2nd Battalion of the Grenadier Guards that they are to salute all officers in the Guards irrespective of rank; and, if this is so, if he can state under whose authority this Order has been issued; and, whether this Order is in conformity with the Queen's Regulations, which provide that officers shall only salute those of senior rank?

THE SECRETARY OF STATE (Mr. E. STANHOPE) (Lincolnshire, Horncastle)

An Order has for some time been in force to the effect that Auxiliary officers attached to the School of Instruction shall salute the commanding officer when he comes on parade; but there is no intention that anything contrary to the custom of the Service shall be thereby introduced, and care will be taken to prevent it.
