Sir FREDERICK BORDEN:
Attention is directed to a reply given, on the 9th instant, to a similar inquiry. (See
pages 3345 and 3346, unrevised ' Hansard.' So far, however, as the conditions governing the selection of non-commissioned officers and men are concerned, the following have been added to those already specified:
(a) The non-commissioned officers and men selected are to be chosen from the most efficient companies of infantry regiments. and each representative must be from a different company.
(b) No application from any one who has already taken part in former contingents on such great occasions as the jubilee of the late Queen Victoria, or the coronation of the late King will be considered.
(c) Preference is to be given to those who have served in the field.
Subtopic: THE CORONATION CONTINGENT.
