HC Deb 19 February 1920 vol 125 c1073W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether appointments to the command of Territorial brigades are to be confined to Regular or Territorial officers; and, if so, whether he will reconsider this arrangement, in view of the services rendered by the Special Reserve of Officers both in the preparation of the Armies for the field by recruiting and training officers and men and in actual command of brigades in action during the War?


In selecting the officers to command Territorial brigades, the names of all colonels, whether Regular, Territorial, or Special Reserve, are considered.
