PROBABLE CALLING OUT 01 RESERVES The Times (in a leader) says We are; 14 con- dition to land at once and in a state of efficiency an expedition consisting of one or even two army corps upon the shores of the Mediterranean. We have a full supply of trained and efficient soldiers for the pur- pose. In this respect we are in a far better position than ever before, although as regards the condition of some of the regiments standing first for service a little more time is required to make them what they ought to be. Upon the necessity of an expedition be- coming manifest, the Government will advise the Queen to issue her proclamation, declaring an occa- sion 'of great emergency,' and thereupon calliBg out both the army and the militia reserve. Herein lies the chief value of our military reforms. The army reserve consists of about 27,000 men and the militia reserve of about the same number. Each man of the former has undergone several years' and each of the latter several months' military training. These two bodies would, therefore, constitute a direct and posi- tive addition to our fighting strength of over 50,000 men, of whom one-half would at once take their place in the ranks as matured, trained and efficient soldiers, while the other half would be in a brief time scarcely less fit for the field.
