§ 29. Major ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware of the fact that hitherto the same horses have been employed in several Territorial mounted corps, either of Yeomanry or Artillery; and whether he will consider the necessity of taking effective steps to put a stop to this practice?
§ Colonel SEELY
It is understood that the same horses are sometimes used by more than one corps at the annual training at camp, but this practice is limited to a considerable extent by the fact that the camp periods of mounted units overlap. For instance, twenty-eight Yeomanry units were up for training simultaneously at the end of May. I am not aware of any scheme which would obviate this practice without involving considerable additional expenditure.
§ Major ANSTRUTHER-GRAY
If the horses' hoofs were marked, would not that put an end to the practice?
