HC Deb 23 January 1902 vol 101 c659

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can state the reason why, according to Army Order 1 of this month, officers of the Imperial Yeomanry will in future rank with those of the Militia, but officers of the Volunteers will rank in a grade lower by themselves, seeing that the latter pass the same examinations as the officers of the Militia.


Under the Act of 1901 the Imperial Yeomanry were brought generally under the enactments relating to the Militia, and the officers were accordingly made to rank with the Militia officers. The officers of Militia and Volunteers do not pass the same examinations.
