HC Deb 23 June 1898 vol 59 c1240

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether it has been decided that the Staff Corps cadets at the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, both of the intermediate and junior divisions, are to leave the college a term before their time, thus causing other cadets to lose six months' seniority, and some of them to be actually gazetted at the same time as those to whom they are senior by a term?


The whole of the intermediate and junior divisions of the cadets at Sandhurst, infantry, cavalry, and Indian Staff Corps, will pass out a term earlier than usual. In gazetting these cadets no change will be made in the usual rules. The cadets of the Indian Staff Corps of the elder batch will be gazetted senior to those of the junior batch.
