HC Deb 11 August 1896 vol 44 c488

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether he can see his way to causing a search to be made in the store rooms at the Tower, Windsor Castle, and elsewhere for trophies, or relics of trophies, captured in the wars of the last century, and accidentally stored out of sight, with a view to their being placed in Chelsea Hospital where they can be publicly seen?


All trophies in the charge of the Secretary of State are either exhibited locally at such places as Edinburgh and Stirling Castles, or they are concentrated at the Tower of London, where they are probably more accessible to the public than they would be in Chelsea Hospital. The Secretary of State has no control over Windsor Castle.
