HC Deb 30 June 1915 vol 72 cc1792-3
10. Sir J. D. REES

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the War Office will consider the propriety of treating the uniform of the affiliated Volunteer in the same manner as that of the Territorial and Regular soldier, namely, making it illegal for any person to wear such uniform unless duly authorised; and whether he will cause inquiries to be made into the feeling of affiliated Volunteers regarding the wearing of the brassard?


No uniform has been authorised by the War Office for Volunteer Training Corps, and the action suggested in the first part of the question is therefore not possible. I am afraid I cannot undertake to make the inquiries suggested in the second part of the question.

Sir J. D. REES

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the brassard is unpopular?


As I have already informed my hon. Friend more than once, I am told by those who do not share the hon. Member's views that the brassard is not unpopular.
