HC Deb 27 November 1902 vol 115 c619
SIR MARK STEWART) (Kirkcudbrightshire

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War if he is aware that the 1st Ayr and Galloway Artillery Volunteers have not had the services of an adjutant for more than a year; and will he state how many other Artillery Volunteer corps have no adjutants at the present time, and what steps he proposes to take to meet the difficulty, in consideration of the higher efficiency expected from Volunteers.


The adjutancy of the regiment in question has been vacant for a year, and several other Artillery Volunteer corps have been without adjutants in consequence of the great demand for artillery officers in the recent campaign. Instructions have recently been issued to General Officers commanding to take immediate measures to secure candidates for the vacancies.
