Indian Army Committee

ELSEWHERE will be found a paragraph giving the terms of reference and the personnel of the Army Committee appointed by the India Office. The Bombay Chronicle writing on the non-inclusion of a single Indian member in the committee remarks:-“In a Committee of nine, there is not a single Indian! Indians have done their share in the war and we are certain that an Indian thoroughly conversant with military affairs could have been found for appointment in the Committee. India’s services in the war, even according to the admissions of British statesmen, are to be measured not merely by her magnificent record during the last five years but also by the incalculable contribution she made, for decades before the war, from year to year, in the shape of military expenditure for beyond the capacity of her people and the necessity of her own defence. If the reward of all this is still to give the representatives of her people no control over the military policy of the country, is it not fair that they should be given some voice, at least, in the determination of that policy?”
