§ 28. Sir JOHN JARDINE
asked the Secretary of State for War whether a second lieutenant of the Royal Field Artillery, who is attached to a battery for a period which may extend to eighteen months until he is posted to some battery, is not entitled to draw forage for a horse, whereas a Special Reserve subaltern draws forage during his attachment; and, if so, whether he will consider the advisability of providing for the forage for a horse being given at once to the former officer?
§ Colonel SEELY
An officer of the Royal Field Artillery is entitled to forage for one horse under paragraph 123, Allowance Regulations, and I am not aware that any second lieutenant attached pending posting has been treated differently from other officers in this respect. If the hon. Gentleman has a case in mind and will let me have the particulars I will cause inquiry to be made.
