HC Deb 13 July 1897 vol 51 cc16-7
LORD ALWYNE COMPTON (Beds, Biggleswade)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War if he can state why the 3rd Middlesex Artillery Volunteers are still described in the Army List as garrison artillery, inasmuch that their armament has for the past three years been that of position artillery; and whether, as long as this anomaly exists, the officers are precluded from attending the school of instruction for position artillery?


The corps has been described as garrison artillery, but as they have been provisionally furnished with 9-pounder and 13-pounder guns for instructional purposes, their position will be considered before the next Estimates are framed.

Forward to
