HC Deb 15 September 1939 vol 351 c887
1. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the recent announcement of the incorporation of the Territorial Army into the Regular Forces, officers and other ranks of the former Territorial Army will now cease to wear the letter "T" on their shoulder straps?

The Financial Secretary to the War Office (Sir Victor Warrender)

Although conditions of service in the Territorial Army, while it is embodied, are assimilated to those in the Regular Army, the Territorial Army has not ceased to exist, but it is not intended to continue the wearing of the letter "T" on their uniform during the war.
