From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia
TO THE EDITOR OF THE TIMES.
Sir, — your Parliamentary Summary says that "Mr. Tennant was severe upon the advocates for uniforms for Volunteer Corps." This is a misconception of his remarks. He was severe upon young men who should be at the front wearing such uniforms. The Volunteer corps must have uniforms or they will be outside all military law in carrying out the duties which they hope may be assigned to them.
