Its definite shape represents a militia, similar to the Swiss militia, and is under the control of the War Minister. In the event, of war, the regular army and the volunteer army are united under the same supreme command.

As regards the military feeling of the troops and the relations of the separate sections of the army, a reasoned judgment cannot be passed by a layman, especially one who is not familiar with the language, and has not had the opportunity for a lengthy observation.
