The Territorial Army has two rdles to fulfil. One is the duty of acting as an auxiliary to, and expanding the cadres of, the Kegular Forces in warfare overseas. The other is the task of protecting the United Kingdom against a hostile military expedition, which has by some means pierced that armour of sea-power constituting the primary and principal safeguard of the realm. At a time when this new organisation has still to emerge out of its embryo state, and when all who take an intelligent interest in national security look to its speedily reaching full maturity and achieving the standard of efficiency which it must possess to justify its existence, a consideration of the peculiar tactics called for by the conditions arising in home defence may not be inopportune, in view of the special responsibilities of our troops in second line.
