HC Deb 14 March 1898 vol 54 c1504
MR. R. G. WEBSTER (St. Pancras, E.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether, at present, the Officers who on retirement join the reserve of Officers have any opportunity to keep themselves in touch with the Military service; and whether, inasmuch as drill and tactics change from time to time in all branches of Her Majesty's Military service, and especially in the scientific branches, some system could be devised by which such Officers in the Reserve as desired it should have an opportunity for at least a fortnight a year of being attached to, and drilling with, one of the branches of the Service?


This question has been carefully considered by the Military authorities, but it has not been thought desirable to take any steps.
