The average strength of the Militia during the war was 96,674; of these 45,566 went to South Africa and 5,922 went to Malta, Egypt and St. Helena, leaving at home an average of 45,186.


What was the proportion of the Militia Reserve furnished to the forces in South Africa?

I should like notice of that question. I am not quite certain as to the figures.
