Default 1911; OTC, Junior Division Contingents -formation dates

The following links to parliamentary debates for 11 April 1911 gives the dates of formation of the junior contingents of the OTC in existence at that time. I thought this might be of interest.

Thankyou very much for the link, John. Very interesting information there. The numbers would give a rough idea as to the relative scarcity of the badges.
Cheers, Tinto

Default Badges of the Public School Corps 1901

Doing some research tonight I came across The Public School Magazine" Vol V111 July-Dec 1901 which has a 9 page article titled Badges of the Public School Corps

It contains contemporary accounts, with some illustrations, of the cap badges buttons and collar badges work by several OTCs which may be of interest to some members. The pages of interest are 381-389.

The link below will hopefully take you to a free google e-book which one can download.

John

Default The Public School Magazine, 1901

Hi John

Very many thanks indeed for posting this up, it certainly sounds like a valuable resource and just the kind of thing I’ve been looking for with regard to Uppingham’s badge. Unfortunately when I follow the link things only appear in ‘Snippet view’, or at least that’s how it comes up for me! So if there happens to be a kind soul out there who can access this, or someone who already has a copy of the article in question, then I really would be most grateful if they could e-mail what it has about Uppingham please?

Best regards

Martin

I was able to download the entire publication, it is 54MB. If you pm me your e-mail address I shall extract the article and send it to you later tonight my time unless things work out for you earlier.

There is also a reference to an article in an earlier volume on uniforms which I intend to seek out. At first glance last night it seems that all previous volumes are also available.

Default Badges of the Public School Corps article

Hi John

That’s ever so good of you. I’ve now sent you a PM with my e-mail address, and very much look forward to receiving a copy of the article in due course. Don’t know why I’m only getting the ‘Snippet view’, but maybe it’s something to do with the computer I’m using!? Anyroad, thank you again for offering to let me have a copy of this - much appreciated.

Best regards

Martin

Default Cadet Corps in the 1911 Army List

https://archive.org/stream/hartsannu...training+corps

This page lists the recognised Cadet Corps. Some are for junior boys in schools with OTCs as well. Others later became OTCs in the expansion of OTCs in the 1930s.

Default Army List

Alan,

Treat this list with caution. Cross-referencing with other sources would indicate that it could take many months for the List to be updated after a unit was formed/ disbanded or Establishment varied.

Stephen.

It is indeed out of date compared to the list on my OTC album of the same year.

There is at one OTC not mentioned in any other source so it is still useful

Lt Col Alan Roderick Haig Brown (1877-1918) author of “The OTC in the Great War” 1915, which lists all the OTC at the time.

I recently came across this Hansard entry which dates the closure of 4 Junior Division OTCs in 1934-5:

'Instructions have been issued for the following contingents to be disbanded:—Bradford Grammar School, Northampton School, Reigate Grammar School, and Rydal School. These contingents are being disbanded because they have not, over a period of years, sufficiently fulfilled the purpose for which contingents are designed, that is, to supply officers for the Territorial Army and Supplementary Reserve in peace, and to build up a reserve of potential officers for use in emergency. They are being replaced.'

The 'new' Junior Division OTCs included:

- Christ College Brecon
- Llandovery College.
- Rutlish School
