HC Deb 07 August 1899 vol 76 c12
MR. BROOKFIELD (Sussex, Rye)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether certain men of the 1st (Pembrokeshire) Volunteer Battalion, the Welsh Regiment, have lately been guilty of insubordination; whether the men in question were under military law at the time of the alleged occurrence; and what action is being taken with regard to the matter.


It is entirely denied by the Officer Commanding at the review that there was any insubordination. The men were not under military law, and no action is called for. The statement in the Press appears to have been greatly exaggerated. A few more men paraded than were expected. Luncheons ran short, and there was a little not unnatural grumbling.
