HC Deb 16 December 1912 vol 45 cc1117-8W

One hundred and twenty-six battalions have received the tripod mountings, and of the remaining, eighty-one it is hoped that seventy-three will receive them in time for next year's training. The rest will be completed in 1913–14. No tripod mountings have yet been issued to the South Wales Infantry-Brigade.
