HC Deb 03 August 1897 vol 52 c237

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he will state the number of Volunteer Corps in Scotland with English Officers as Adjutants; and, in view of the recent difficulty which has arisen with the Airdrie Volunteers, will he arrange, as far as possible, to appoint Scottish Officers as Adjutants of Scottish Volunteer Corps?


The nationality of individual officers is not considered in the case of Volunteer Adjutancies; but every effort is made to obtain as Adjutant of a Volunteer battalion an Officer from the Territorial regiment of which it forms a part. The great majority of Adjutants of Scottish Rifle Volunteers belong to Scottish regiments.
