HC Deb 27 February 1912 vol 34 c1327W

asked the Under-Secretary for War if the issue of extra equipment for training recruits at the depots is being considered, as the web equipment cannot last the time required where it is in continual use, as at the depots?

Colonel SEELY

There is no information to show that the web equipment becomes prematurely worn out when used at depots, and the question of extra issues is therefore not being considered.
