HC Deb 01 July 1856 vol 143 c118

rose to ask Her Majesty's Government whether some substantial mark of approbation might not be given to Lieutenant Colonel Lake and Lieutenant Colonel Teesdale for their distinguished services at Kars?


was understood to say that Colonel Lake's position as a colonel in the army would enable him to receive the Order of the Bath; but it was not usual, as he had observed on a former occasion, to recommend Parliament to make any pecuniary provision for any officers except those who had the good fortune to be at the head of the forces by which a distinguished achievement was accomplished.
