HC Deb 15 February 1900 vol 79 c70
MR. NICOL (Argyllshire)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether officers chosen from Volunteer battalions for service in South Africa will receive a grant of £100 for equipment, such as is given to an officer promoted from the ranks or to a Reserve officer recalled for service.


An officer from the Reserve of Officers if called out is granted £100 for outfit. Terms were offered for Volunteers for service in South Africa, which were accepted and, as we are at present advised, were acceptable. These did not include more for the officers who volunteered than the special capitation rate which is granted to the corps for men of any rank who volunteer.
