asked the Secretary of State for War why the date of the August centenary celebration at Skail and Dornoch of the Thin Red Line, 93rd Sutherland Highlanders at Balaclava, remains unknown whilst the dates of the celebrations at Stirling, London and Glasgow in October have been arranged and published; and if he will expedite the fixing of the date in August so that the descendants of the men who fought at Balaclava who live in Caithness and Sutherland will receive reasonable notice of this event.

It has been necessary to find the most suitable date for the members of the regimental association. The ceremonies are now likely to be held on 26th August at about 12.30 p.m. at Skail and at about 5.30 p.m. at Dornoch.
