TO thb editor. Sir, —I would like to call your attention to rather a harsh rule which has lately been imposed on the members of the Permanent Artillery—namely, that they must wear their uniforms at all times, whether on or off duty. Now, as the members of the Armed Constabulary, the Police force, and other branches of the Public Service are allowed to wear whatever they please when not actually on duty, why should so reasonable a privilege be withheld from the Permanent Artillery men ? It is a well known fact that members of the Permanent Artillery cannot come into town at night to spend their leisure time without being insulted by specimens of the larrikin class. Why should they be exposed to this ? Ia it not enough that they should be subjected to this treatment when on duty without being compelled to submit to it during their leisure ? Trusting that the authorities will remove this rule as soon as possible—l am, etc., Justice. Dunedin, September 18.
