Instruction in Science for Military Purposes

IN response to requests from a number of important centres, I subjoin a syllabus covering the essential points to be taught to officers, N.C.O.'s, and men who have only a limited time at their disposal taken from other military duties. Experience has shown that much valuable work may be done by following on the liries suggested, all extraneous matter being excluded. The scheme has been found to be satisfactory for all ranks; in the case of officers, however, who have had some previous training in science, the matters may be treated in a more advanced manner. Teachers will find N.C.O.'s and men very keen and intelligent, and completely useless men quite rare. An excellent chance is now afforded by the men called up under Lord Derby's scheme, of which all teachers who can should avail themselves.
