HC Deb 17 March 1896 vol 38 c1166
CAPTAIN JESSEL (St. Pancras, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Cavalry Drill Book, 1891, has been out of print for a year, and that no copies of the new Drill Book, with the exception of a few official ones printed in January last, are at present obtainable; and whether, having regard to the grave inconvenience caused to officers, and especially to non-commissioned officers, he will take steps in future to prevent delay in the issue of an adequate supply of Drill Books to the Army?


The new Drill Book is now in course of issue. The editing and compression of this work was a matter of considerable difficulty and necessarily occupied several months.
