HC Deb 17 June 1907 vol 176 c147

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he proposes, under the Territorial Army scheme, to increase the establishment of Yeomanry regiments by twenty, or by what number of men, with corresponding officers, to provide the divisional cavalry of the Regular Army.


It is proposed to obtain the divisional cavalry for the Regular Army by inviting Imperial Yeomanry regiments to provide troops for service in the special contingent. These would be additional to the peace establishment, but would be affiliated to the Yeomanry regiment furnishing them.

MR. COCHRANE (Ayrshire, N.)

Where will you got the officers for this divisional cavalry?


Officers will be invited to go into the Reserve for the purpose.
