asked the Secretary of State for India what progress has been made in the recruiting of members of the domiciled Anglo-Indian community for Cavalry, Artillery, and Infantry to be of general service with British troops during the War?

The SECRETARY of STATE for INDIA (Mr. Chamberlain)

I have no official information as to the progress of recruiting, but I gather from the Indian newspapers that over 1,000 men have enlisted and that prospects are generally favourable.
