THE ARMED FORCES

bers, each with certain duties. Haldane modelled the new territorial army as a permanent reserve, and in 1909 established, with the support of the Dominions, an Imperial General Staff. An Imperial Defence College was created in 1926.
But the essential social and political character of the army seems to have been unaffected. Haldane had to meet opposition from high quarters, but did not hesitate to remove "a distinguished general" who objected to his plans.(1) He was in the main successful, however, in carrying his officers with him, and so the old order remained. The full significance of this became manifest as soon as an acute constitutional crisis developed when Home Rule for Ireland, granted over the heads of the Lords, came into immediate prospect in 1914. Then, when the great majority of the upper class was violently opposed to the policy of the Government, the country came to see something of the importance of the fact that its army is recruited in such a way that officers are drawn exclusively from that upper class, and are its relations and friends. Sir Edward Carson's Ulster volunteers, equipped with German rifles, the first rebel army on British territory for a century and a half, were faced by a government which, not unlike the Spanish Government of 1936, could not rely on its regular forces, and perhaps would be unable to deal with a mutiny within their ranks. Knowing that he would have such rebel support, the leader of the Conservative Parry publicly advised the King to take the unconstitutional course of refusing to accept the Bill. George V at Balmoral in September 1913, speaking apparently from private information, said to Lord Esher, "I know that these people are well armed with the best rifles and millions of cartridges.
