HC Deb 25 May 1908 vol 189 c754

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War what is the difference between the annual cost of upkeep of a field battery of Royal Artillery on the lower establishment, and of a battery on the two-gun training establishment, respectively; and what is the estimated annual cost of one of the proposed field batteries of the Territorial Force, including camp expenses, pay of the staff, officers and men, care and maintenance of guns, sheds, etc., ammunition, and all other charges.


The difference in annual cost between a lower establishment battery and a training battery of field artillery is about £4,500. The annual cost of a Territorial field battery is about £2,400.
