HC Deb 10 August 1914 vol 65 c2262

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for War whether in the case of former members of the Territorial Force whose period of service has expired, and who now volunteer to serve with the Territorials during the war, the same allowance for kit will be granted as is granted in the case of present members of the force who are now called out?


If the hon. Member refers to officers, they will draw the camp kit allowance of £5 15s, on being gazetted and a special outfit allowance of £20. If he refers to men, their kits are supplied by the Government. If he refers to the embodiment gratuity of £5, this is not issuable to men who enlist now, but is confined to Territorials called out.
