These batteries will not be disbanded, but will be converted into field artillery batteries, a corresponding number of field artillery units of comparatively recent formation being absorbed by them. I much regret the necessity for the disappearance of these latter batteries, but the course chosen appears to be the fairest in the general interest that is practicable in the circumstances. The method of grouping could not be applied to the batteries of the horse or field artillery.
