THE TERRITORIALS. In their departure for camp on Saturday, the various companies of the 7th R.W.F. created an excellent public impression by smart and soldierly bearing, which attests the efficiency of their instruction, and also, we believe, the deeper interest they feel in military service under regulations that charge them with a serious responsibility, and seek to equip them as a capable and trusted defensive force for any possible emergency. It is gratifying to learn from its officers that the regiment as a whole is making rapid progress towards the stand- ard aimed at by Mr Haldane's scheme, and this fact encourages the hope that from all parts of Montgomeryshire there will be a steady strengthening of the battalion by young men, who should not only appreciate their patriotic duty but recognise the moral and physical benefits that accrue from the discipline and exercise of military training. Speaking generally, the territorial force though practically still in the embryo stage has transcended the highest hopes of its most enthusiastic supporters. The manhood of the country has responded gallantly, and with the provision of facilities for the enlist- ment of various classes of people whose cir- cumstances are not adaptable to present military requirements, the numbers might be doubled. This is the answer to Lord Roberts' ill-timed demand for conscript ser- vice-grievously and ungraciously ill-timed by a commander-in-chief whose term of office is unmarked by any noteworthy reforms.
