HC Deb 01 April 1914 vol 60 c1190W

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether His Majesty's ship "King Edward VII." sent in a demand to be supplied with four field guns and ammunition on her arrival in England; and what is the complement of ammunition for each gun; whether he will inform the House the type of ammunition demanded; and whether each of His Majesty's ships "King Edward VII." sent in similar demands?


The Vice-Admiral Commanding the Third Battle Squadron asked permission to draw four or eight field guns for the Squadron for exercising the men, but demanded no ammunition. Approval was given to embark four guns with their usual proportion of ammunition, as the latter always accompanies the guns.
