HC Deb 23 February 1903 vol 118 c491

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War in what capacity, civil or military, did he hold inspections of troops and review guards of honour at Malta; and whether he is aware that Colonel Stanley, who in 1878, as Secretary of State for War, inspected troops at Malta, had served in the Grenadier Guards, of which he was a captain, and was honorary Colonel of the King's Own Royal Lancaster Regiment.


I have already told the hon. Member that the inspection was held by the Governor. I have no information as to whether Colonel Stanley inspected the troops at Malta in 1878.
