HC Deb 07 May 1900 vol 82 cc874-5
SIR J. LENG (Dundee)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether it has come to his knowledge that sixteen men of the Black Watch, † See The Parliamentary Debates [Fourth Series], Vol. lxxviii., p. 340. who were wounded at Magersfontein and sent home in the transport "Dunera," have been disappointed in not receiving the Queen's chocolate, which was distributed four months ago to the battalion at the front, and whether a promise given to the men when in Netley Hospital that the neglect would be remedied will yet be fulfilled.


Nothing is known of the matter referred to. Any soldiers who have not received the Queen's gift should apply to the General Officer Commanding Communications, Cape Town, who has full instructions to deal with all such cases.
