Soldiers in Uniform. To the Editor of the "County Echo." Sir, -Having seen in your last issue a letter by R. N." on the above subject, in which he confirms my last letter on the few points of my arguements, that those who wear His Majesty's uniform are not debarred from tak- ing part in the politics of the Empire. I happen to know that your correspondent holds a very high position in this Majesty's service and has occasion to handle the King's regulations in the course of his duty, so I hope that it will satisfy everybody that there is nothing in the King's regulations about political gatherings. And now just one more point: your correspondent under 'Entre Nous wishes to know, that if my contention be correct, how do I explain the fact that the local Territorials were officially informed that they could not attend that particular meeting in uniform ? I was not aware before that they were informed, but my explanation is this: A senior officer can make an order to that effect and put any place out of bounds, if he thinks necessary, and that order must be strictly adhered to, and if such an order was given previous to that particular meeting then those men who attended laid themselves open to severe punishment for disobeying orders from their superior officer; and if such an order exists throughout the army then it is a general order from the Commander-in-chief of the Forces or some other high personage, and not from the King's regulations. Perhaps R.N." will help me to throw further light on the above subject. Now that I have answered the above query as best as I can, perhaps he will answer me this: Why is it that in Hyde Park, London, where all sorts of public gatherings are held that you will see hundreds of soldiers and sailors mixed up in the throng. Now, if it was against the regulations they would not be there and if there was an order issued, I am sure they would not be made although they can issue an order to stop them. No one seems to trouble about it. Yet some one seems to kick up a dust about a few Terriers we have in Fishguard.—Yours truly, EX-FLATFOOT.

An Insult to Wales and Welshmen.
