Military Secretary

I was reading the letter below dated 2/9/41 about the change in responsibility of the Military Secretary 1901-04.

Below are the two references mentioned in the letter.

But this extract from Queens Regs 1859 shows that the Military Secretary was already responsible to the Commander in Chief.

So did the responsibility change between 1859 and 1901 or did the post-Crimea re-organisation debate of seventeen Royal Commissions, eighteen Parliamentary Select Committees and nineteen War Office Committees actually forget who controlled the Military Secretary?

I think that the simplest way to check will be to compare the relevant paragraph (the last that you posted) in Queens Regulations for the Army within each iteration between the dates concerned. I suspect that between your collection and perhaps other forum members all or most editions will be covered.

Funnily enough a KR 1912 arrived today. So now looking for QR/KR pre 1912.
