HC Deb 18 March 1919 vol 113 c1895
33. Captain LOSEBY

asked the Secretary of State for War if the Twenty-ninth Division will shortly be disbanded; and if he will consider the advisability of issuing instructions that units which composed it shall be allowed to retain the red diamond upon their uniforms in perpetual memory of the performances of this division?


The question of how to preserve the memory of the many famous divisions of the British Army within the limits of our comparatively small peace time organisation will be carefully considered during the next few months. But I am not yet in a position to say what steps are practicable. It would be invidious to deal with a single division.
