HC Deb 19 November 1914 vol 68 c546

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether men of the 10th battalion of the Hampshire regiment, which has been sent to Mullingar, in Ireland, have been sent back to Aldershot to learn cooking; and whether it would have been possible to save a good deal of expense by letting them learn this art in some Irish camp?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. H. J. Tennant)

I could not say whether the men were sent from Mullingar without asking for a special report, but there is no inherent improbability in the statement as the School of Army Cookery is at Aldershot, and as there is no similar school in Ireland where the men could be instructed.
