HC Deb 17 July 1905 vol 149 c870

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he can state which standard of musketry efficiency in the Volunteer Regulations, 1901, will be taken as equivalent to first-class shot in order to comply with paragraph 4, Army Council Circular Letter of July 11th, 1905.


In the case of Volunteers who have not carried out the present course as laid down in Musketry Regulations of 1903, but have fired that contained in Appendix VIII. Volunteer Regulations, 1901, the equivalent to a first-class shot will be held to be the obtaining of not less than fifty-five points in the last course performed (individual practices).
