§ 67. Sir CHARLES HENRY
asked the Under-Secretary for War the reason for 1522 Army Council Instruction No. 787, of 12th April, prohibiting commissioned officers attached to Officers' Training Corps from wearing uniform except on the days when they are engaged on some military duty; and whether he is aware that these officers, although not on active service, are doing useful military work, and the fact of their not being allowed to wear their uniform except on the occasions stated in the order has aroused resentment?
§ Mr. TENNANT
My hon. Friend will see that some definite significance must attach to the wearing of uniform. The officers he refers to are not mobilised, and it would be wrong that they should wear uniform when carrying out their ordinary civil avocation. It has, therefore, been decided that the wearing of uniform must be confined to occasions when military duties are being performed.
