§ Andrew Mackinlay
To ask the Secretary of State for Defence apart from the colours displayed in Windsor 49W Castle, where the regimental silver and other artefacts of the Irish regiments disbanded in 1922 are held; and if he will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Caplin
When the five Irish Infantry Regiments, together with the South Irish Horse, were disbanded in 1922, some items of Regimental memorabilia were reclaimed by donors or dispersed among former officers and NCOs. Some Regimental books were deposited at the Public Record Office, now the National Archives. Otherwise, the greater part of Mess silver and artefacts now belongs to the National Army Museum, which is the Regimental Museum for the disbanded Irish Regiments. Canadian silver and artefacts of the 1st Battalion Leinster Regiment (Royal Canadian) are now in the Museum of the Royal Military College, Kingston, Ontario.
