HC Deb 28 July 1896 vol 43 c823

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether the officers who were specially selected last April to join the Nile Expeditionary Force are paid from British or Egyptian Army funds; and if from the latter, why these officers have not been seconded?


With two exceptions, these officers were seconded in the Gazette of the 21st instant, their seconding dating from two months after they went out to Egypt. The other two officers will be seconded in the next Gazette. As seconded officers they will be paid by the Egyptian Government.
