§ 90. Sir JOHN JARDINE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in a Territorial battalion, if the commanding officer approves, the battalion scouts can, as is done in many Regular battalions, wear khaki shorts instead of regulation trousers?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)
Khaki shorts do not form part of the regulation uniform of and are not officially recognised for the Regular Army, and it is not thought desirable to recognise them in the case of Territorial units.
