§ Mr. RUPERT GWYNNE
asked whether officers of the Special Reserve supplementary to a regiment are promoted on the establishments of the Reserve battalions or the Regular battalions; and, if not, how are they promoted for services, and who makes the recommendation?
§ Mr. TENNANT
They are at present promoted by time,i.e., after five years to lieutenant and after ten years to captain, but an alteration of the system is under consideration. Recommendations would come from the Commanding Officer of the battalion with which the officer is serving.
