HC Deb 15 June 1910 vol 17 c1431W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the officer commanding the 2nd battalion Inniskilling Fusiliers was asked to arrange for the attendance of some representatives of the 1st battalion, which fought at Waterloo, at the Military Pageant and made arrangements accordingly, but was afterwards informed that the battalion was not intended to be represented; and will he take steps to secure that the old 27th, which bore such a distinguished part in Wellington's campaigns, shall not be excluded, as their proposed exclusion has caused dissatisfaction in Fermanagh and Tyrone?


Sanction has been given for the 2nd battalion of this regiment to take part in the Army Pageant. The 1st battalion is quartered at Tientsin, from which remote station it is not considered expedient to bring men to take part in a pageant.
