HC Deb 17 August 1916 vol 85 c2068

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in response to an expressed desire throughout the country, he will make a recommendation that the Territorial Artillery units of the British Army, which have now taken a share in the actual fighting on all our different fronts, in France, in Flanders, and in the Near East, in addition to serving in far distant stations of the Empire, shall now be permitted, like the men in the old Army formations, to use and wear the same motto, Ubique?


The question of extending to Territorial Force units the mottoes and honours borne by corresponding units of the Regular Army could not be considered without reference to all arms, and not merely in reference to the Artillery. This matter has engaged the attention of the Army Council, who are of opinion; that it cannot be settled until after the War, and only in connection with the general question of the future organisation, of the Army.
