THE VOLUNTEERS. I TERRITORIAL A. SSOCIATION'S, TASK. TO PEYELQP .IfEE., NEW I I. FORCE. Important announcements regarding the future of the Territorial Force were made on Friday by Lord Derby, Secretary for War, at a. meeting of chairmen and secretaries of the Territorial Force Associations at the Middlesex Guildhall. He stated that :— It is to be made easier for Territorial officers, to reach the higher commands. The Director-G eneral is not to be abol- ished, and the Territorial privileges and rights will be maintained. The Territorial Force will be reorganised and strengthened after the war. Associations will play an important part in demobilisation. Lord Derby, on the Volunteers, said — "The Territorial Force has fulfilled its obligation to defend these shores by sending aji army across the water," he said, but it idees snot follow that we do not require a large force at home for the purpose of re- sisting any invasion that the enemy may con- template. We will not discuss the likeli- hood or unlikelihood of such an invasio.n, but I am sure you will agree with me that we would be nearly as ill-advised as we were before the war if we did not prepare for such an emergency. In the Volunteer Force I .believe we have the nucleus of a force that will ad- mirablv fulfil this duty. We Want every avattabte man who Can stand lighting overseas to take part in that fighting but there are men at home who. for reasons of age and infirmity, are una.ble to do this, but who are only too ready to play their part in the defence bf this country in case of invasion. I want you, just as you created the Territorial Force as a home defence force and handed it over to the nation as part and parcel of the Expeditionary Force, to assist in every way in your power in creating a new force to j take its place at home and to keep your I organisation in working order, so that when j peace comes thea? Volunteers wiU disappear, and back to yon will come the Territorial Force for you to reorganise, strengthen, and support on an extended basis."
