HC Deb 01 March 1915 vol 70 c580W

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether regimental sergeant-majors of the Territorial Force who prior to mobilisation ranked as acting warrant officers will now be promoted to warrant rank; and whether, if so, they will be provided at the public expense with Sam Browne belt and other necessary clothing and equipment, to enable them to comply with Army Order 68 of 1915, which lays down that warrant officers are to be armed and equipped in the same way as officers of their corps?


The question of the status of acting sergeant-majors of the Territorial Force is at present receiving consideration, and I hope that a decision will be reached shortly.
