HC Deb 24 July 1912 vol 41 cc1189-90W

asked the Secretary for War if a change in the uniform of the Royal Artillery is under consideration, and is likely to be made very shortly; and, if so, whether he could issue a notice to that effect, with instructions of such a character, in sufficient time to enable gentlemen cadets now passing out of the Royal Military Academy, Woolwich, to obtain the new pattern uniform, and so enable them to avoid the expense which will otherwise have to be incurred in complying with the new regulations?

Colonel SEELY

Certain minor changes in the uniform are under consideration, full particulars of which will shortly be published. In the meantime instructions are being issued that gentlemen cadets why may be gazetted to commissions before the changes are notified may utilise their cadet service dress and mess dress pending preparation of the new pattern. No expense will be incurred by the changes as officers will wear out the garments in their possession.
