CADET COMPANY AT KILWORTH CAMP.

Over 100 (about half the present strength) of the men of C Company of the 7th Leinsters, now at Kilworth Camp, are cadets. All are educated men and have been approved by General Parsons for admission. There are a couple of bar- risters ; others are civil servants, school-masters (secondary and primary), clerks, farmers’ sons, etc. Most are Catholics,but there is a good sprinkling of Protestants. The cadets are ordinary soldiers in every way, but they occupy four rooms and, therefore, sleep and mess together, and have non-commissioned officers from their own number. They are considered with a view to commissions, but no promise. About 70 commissions, mainly in the Irish Division (but not exclusively), have been obtained from the cadets. The company would be looked to for vacancies occurring in the field.
