HC Deb 26 March 1896 vol 39 c165
*SIR CHARLES DILKE (Gloucester, Forest of Dean)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether men from the Royal Artillery and other branches of the Service are being invited to join the Egyptian Army?


A certain number of non-commissioned officers are allowed to serve in special appointments in the Egyptian Army, and vacancies are filled from a list of eligible volunteers kept at the War Office. When this list runs low, as recently happened, fresh volunteers are called for.
