HC Deb 20 July 1871 vol 208 cc13-4

asked the Secretary of State for War, On what grounds Captains and Brevet Lieutenant Colonels of the late Indian Artillery, promoted prior to the 14th October 1858, and now amalgamated with the Royal Artillery, are not receiving 2s. 5d. per diem under the Royal Warrant of 1854, headed "Distinguished Services Pay," paragraphs 225 and 226?


This question, Sir, is now the subject of communication with the India Office. The ground on which the claim has not been admitted is, that it is understood that the officers were not entitled to the allowance while serving under the East India Company.
