HC Deb 10 April 1907 vol 172 cc207-8
MR. GIBBS (Bristol, W.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that several regiments have been allowed to return to having their old coloured facings on their uniform, permission will also be given to another regiment with a very famous record, the Sherwood Foresters, the old Forty-fifth, again to have green on theirs.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Haldane.) This proposal was fully considered on the previous recent occasion, and it was held that the application could not be entertained. I am not prepared to reopen the question.
