HC Deb 27 November 1902 vol 115 cc616-7
THE MASTER OF ELIBANK) (Edinburgh, Midlothian

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, looking to the continued service in South Africa, dating from December, 1899, of the 1st Battalion Inniskilling Fusiliers, and its loss in action of twelve officers and 192 non-commissioned officers and men, and also in view of the fact that the 2nd Battalion of the regiment is in South Africa, he will consider the possibility of removing the 1st Battalion to a home station.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) This battalion will be brought home in its turn from South Africa as soon as it can be spared.
