HC Deb 25 March 1901 vol 91 cc1088-9

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.


There is no information to show this. At some few depots, there are officers with South African experience, but the majority of such officers are at present either in South Africa or at home sick.
