Apart from boots, which are issued in order to ensure that the Territorial soldier is shod suitably for his duties, it is not the practice to provide members of the Territorial Army with articles of clothing which are normally required by them in civilian life, and I see no reason to make an exception to this rule in the case of socks. As regards the issue of a second plate, I am advised that there is no ground for altering the present scale of issue, which is the same for the Territorial Army as for the Regular Army.
