MID-GLAMORGAN STILL WITHOUT PROPER REPRESENTATION. At a quarterly meeting of the Glamorgan Territorial Force Association, held at Car- diff on July loth, the Chairman (General Tyler) presented an interesting report deal- ing with the progress of the Territorial move- ment in the county. The fifteen units al- lotted to the county, ho said, had all been raised1, and excluding the Glamorgan- Royal Garrison Artillery, which was tea officers and 200 men short of the establishment of nine companies, under 400 men were now required to complete the establishment. The Royal Garrison' Artillery would be reduced at an. early date from nine companies to five, and' the number of men already enrolled was in excess of the number required for live com- panies. Dealing with the redistribution of units, he said that the rapid recruiting at Maesteg, where over 130 men were raised in two months, had fully justified the officer commanding the 6th Welsh Regiment in tak- ing one company from Swansea and allotting it to Maesteg. Mid-Glamorgan was still without proper representation in the Terri- torial. Force. It had been proposed to re- store to Bridgend the duty of providing a company of Royal Garrison Artillery, but the expressed intention of the War Office to re- duce the number of companies raised in the county to five had caused this proposal to be abandoned. If the War Office permission could be obtained to the raising of a new Field Ambulance, A.A.M.C., in the Rhondda, there was no doubt that the unit would be raised a.t once. All the units in the county had been provided with temporary accommo- dation, which was fairly satisfactory in all cases except that of the Divisional Telegraph Company. A house taken in Charles-street, Cardiff, for this unit offered totally inade- quate accommodation, and endeavours were being made to obtain better headquarters and training facilities for the unit. The scheme to provide central drill-halls in Cardiff and Swansea, although approved in principle by the Army Council, had not received the necessary financial support, and it had been found impracticable to proceed with the scheme so far as Cardiff was concerned. Com- menting upon his report, the Chairman said that, although they only required about 400 men to complete the Territorial establish- ment in the county, he would point out that the whole establishment of the Territorial Force in Glamorgan was a very small one. There were now, he believed, about 270.000 men enrolled as Territorials in the country. but of that number it might be taken for granted that only about 40,000 would' be available for mobilisation and form part or the field army, as the remainder would be en- gaged in the defence of arsenals, magazines, fortresses, and on all sorts of different duties. That was a point he did not think had been sufficiently understood by everyone, although it was mentioned in the debate in Parliament the other day. Personally, he had always maintained that the strength of the Terri- torial Force should be doubled, and he thought there ought to be at least 600,000 men belonging to the Territorial Force. Major Caple asked, in view of the fact that they were only 400 men short of the total establishment in the county, whether this would be an opportune time for asking the War Office to sanction the raising of an addi- tional company of Fortress Engineers in the county. It was decided to ask Major Caple to for- mulate his claim before the general purposes committee at its next meeting. Colonel Wilson, the commanding officer of the 7th Welsh (Cyclist) Battalion, was voted a sum of £30 to repair the* rifle ranges at Barry to enable the men resident in the eastern district to proceed with their musketry course. Colonel. Gaskell directed attention to the remuneration they paid their secretary (Captain C. J. Wilkie). and said that he thought the present salary was utterly inade- quate in return for the excellent services Captain Willcie rendered. This matter, to- gether with that of the adequacy of the head- quarter staff, was referred to the finance com- mittee for consideration and report.
