HC Deb 28 April 1910 vol 17 c650
Major ADAM

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the Warwickshire Royal Horse Artillery paraded last week for inspection by the Inspector-General of the Forces on horses borrowed from a battery of Regular Artillery?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Haldane)

An ordinary battery parade took place on Thursday, the 21st instant, at which the Inspector-General, who happened to be in the neighbourhood, was present. In order fully to horse the wagons for the occasion twenty-six horses were borrowed as stated. This is permissible under the Regulations, and it would have been very difficult and expensive to have procured horses from civilian sources for that date.
