THE ARMED FORCES

for War is never easy. Hence the importance of a good understanding between the civil and military advisers of the Secretary of State. This has never been realised in my recollection, i.e. since 1882."(1)
The Queen was actively concerned at the close of her reign with the office and the pay of the Commander-inChief. "He ought not to be a head of a department," she wrote to Lord Salisbury, "but the Supreme Military Chief responsible to the Sovereign (the Head of the Army) for its military, as opposed to its civil, administration."(2) Lord Wolseley learns with satisfaction of the Queen's views, and prompts her to continue what is in fact his struggle as Commander-in-Chief to get his own authority increased.(3) The Queen repeatedly quotes Wolseley to the Prime Minister against the Secretary of State. At the same time we find her saying to the former,(4) "Lord Wolseley not being an entire success (as Commander), I felt the Army would prefer a Prince. Lord Salisbury said the feeling had all come round to that, and that he had told Lord Lansdowne Arthur (the Queen's younger son, the Duke of Connaught) would have the next appointment after Lord Wolseley." If the Queen was unsuccessful here in moving the Government to the course she and her army friends wanted, she met with better results when very soon afterwards she was urging an increase in the pay and pension of the Commander-in-Chief. The actual pay was 4,500 pounds a year, and the pension £1,300, but the Queen urged that the "pay of the Commander-in-Chief might be sufficiently raised to enable him to rent a house in London within convenient distance of the War Office
