asked whether a Special Reservist can be allowed, in order to retain his civil employment, to attend evening drills and do his musketry course (equivalent to his annual training) with a Territorial regiment in the town in which he is employed instead of with his regiment in a distant station?
§ Mr. HALDANE
The reply is in the negative. A Special Reservist's annual training consists of camp for fifteen days, with the addition, in the case of infantry, of a course of musketry for six days. In very special circumstances a man may be excused the annual training, but not more than once in four trainings.
