HC Deb 18 February 1915 vol 69 cc1303-4

asked whether volunteers for the Welsh Guards will be accepted and their transfer authorised from the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, Welsh Regiment, and South Wales Borderers, including the battalions of those regiments which form part of the Welsh Army Corps, provided such volunteers are willing to accept the usual terms of service applicable to the Brigade of Guards?

The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. Tennant)

Opportunity will be given to the regiments referred to, to volunteer for the Welsh Guards, but as the required numbers to complete the battalion are rapidly being found from Welshmen in Reserves of the Brigade of Guards, the number required will be strictly limited and confined to battalions serving at home.
