HC Deb 27 February 1900 vol 79 c1207

I beg- to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that in the lift of casualties issued from the War Office on the 22nd instant mention is made of the East Kent Regiment and of the Yorkshire Regiment; on the 23rd of the Royal Highlanders and of the Yorkshire Eight Infantry: that all these are secondary titles, being placed in brackets in the Army List; and whether he can see his way to extend this practice, and use Royal Scots Greys in place of 2nd Dragoons; if not, whether he will say by what rule the War Office is guided in the use of these secondary titles.


TO save time the names of the regiments in the casualty lists are given as telegraphed. The titles to which the lion, and gallant Member refers are without exception those which appear on pages iv. to ix. of "The Monthly Army List."
