HC Deb 04 June 1896 vol 41 c424
MR. HUBERT DUNCOMBE (Cumberland, Egremont)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War, whether the allowance of £20, referred to in the Special Army Order of the 15th May 1896, will be granted to officers joining the Volunteer force as captains without having previously held any commission?


It is proposed to extend the allowance for subalterns joining the Volunteer Force to officers who first join as captains.
