HC Deb 07 September 1909 vol 10 cc1096-7

asked whether officers who passed their examination before the school grants were awarded are expected to pay for their uniforms entirely, or whether a grant of £20 will be allowed to them?


The hon. Member presumably refers to the Officers' Training Corps. Officers on first appointment to the Territorial Force for service with the Officers' Training Corps can obtain an outfit grant of £20 at once. In the case of officers already holding commissions, if any change of uniform is entailed by the formation of an officers' training corps contingent the actual necessary expenses up to £20 can be claimed on production of receipted bills.
