geofffox Posted 24 November , 2011 Share Posted 24 November , 2011 Hi Could someone please clarify when exactly the Special Reserve battalions officially came into being? The Territorial and Reserve Forces Act and the Special Army Order outlining the scheme for the transition from Militia are both dated 1907. Recruitment for the Special Reserve opened on the 16th of January 1908, but the battalions trained as Militia in 1908. The date I have from various diaries is that the actual conversion did not take place until 9th August 1908. Could anyone confirm or correct me on this please?
