HC Deb 28 July 1914 vol 65 c1114
55. Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)

asked if there had been any and, if so, what reduction in the establishment of the Special Reserve since the period of annual training was increased; and what is the normal and actual strength of this force at the present time?


The only reduction in the establishment of the Infantry Special Reserve since the annual training was increased to twenty-seven clays in March, 1911, has been that of eight sergeants in connection with the abolition of the Rifle Sub-depot. The strength on 1st July was 64,157.
