HC Deb 27 March 1906 vol 154 c1058
* SIR CHARLES DILKE) (Gloucestershire, Forest, of Dean

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, since the announcement by his predecessor of the withdrawal of the garrisons from certain West Indian islands, it has been decided to leave in any of such stations detachments of Garrison Artillery or other military corps; and, if so, whether he will explain the object which such detachments are intended to serve.


It has been decided to leave in Jamaica the necessary force of Royal Garrison Artillery and Royal Engineers for the imperial fortress of Kingston, Jamaica.
