§ MR. LAMBERT
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if all the Volunteers and Yeomanry who have volunteered for service in South Africa have been drilled and trained after joining at their depots before embarkation by officers who have had experience of South African warfare.
§ MR. BRODRICK
There is no information to show this. At some few depots, there are officers with South African experience, but the majority of such 1089 officers are at present either in South Africa or at home sick.
