HC Deb 21 July 1924 vol 176 cc894-5W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether there are any military colleges and training schools in India where Indians are allowed to join and study on terms of equality with students from Britain; and the number of such colleges and schools and the number of Indians on the books?


There is only one military training college in India, namely, the Prince of Wales' Indian Military College, Dehra Dun. Only Indian students are admitted, and at present there are only 70. I venture to hope that my hon. Friend, with his well-known love for the military life, will encourage his Indian friends to send their sons to this admirable institution. All officers of the Army, whether British or Indian, enjoy equal rights and facilities at officers' training colleges and courses.
