§ 22. Colonel GREIG
asked the Secretary for War whether any officers who have commanded units on active service are qualified by appointment to command units in the Territorial Army; and, if so, whether he will take steps to insure that a similar qualification shall apply to the command of brigades in the Territorial Army?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
The fact of having successfully commanded a brigade or unit on active service is one of the principal qualifications for appointment to a command in the Territorial Army. It is not the sole consideration, however, because a number of officers, although possessing superior qualifications to those actually given command, could not be spared from the staff or other extra-regimental employment.
