HC Deb 17 November 1902 vol 114 c1118

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he proposes to further investigate the case of Robert Leonard, late sergeant in the 6th Dragoons, who was recently degraded to the ranks, by a sentence of court-martial at York, for having written a letter to the Secretary of State for War, complaining of the harsh way in which recruits in the regiment were treated and making complaints against his squadron commander.


The General Officer commanding the district was recently instructed to make an investigation into this matter. A Report of the proceedings has not yet reached the War Office.
