I NUMERICAL TITLES FOR LINE BATTALIONS. It is not a little surprising to read of reference being made in Parliament to a possibility of numerical titles being restore 1 to battalions of the line. The change from numbers to territorial names was mad-s in opposition to the wishes of many of the regiments who did not wish to part with their old titles, and in fact retained them among themselves for years. Now that a fresh set of men has become accustomed to the territorial titles, it seems to be proposed to go back to the old order, which was declared at the time by War Office officials to be immeasurably inferior to the system which they had devised. Of course, these changes, and those which have taken place in the Royal Artillery and departmental corps, involve something of loss in esprit de corps, and it is very much to be hoped that the War Office will make up its mind, once and for all, by what names the respective units are to be known. It would seem to be desirable that in coming to a decision, the wishes of the regiment should be considered. and if that is so. there appears to be no reason why the 2nd Essex should not be permitted to call themselves the Pompa- dours, as Sir O. Rasch, who represents an Essex division, suggests.
