HC Deb 10 March 1881 vol 259 c723

asked the Secretary of State for War, Why the South African war medal has not been issued to all those who were engaged in the Zulu war?


Sir, I do not quite understand the object of my hon. and gallant Friend's Question. The medal has been issued to all troops of whom we have received proper rolls, and a Committee has just reported on a few doubtful cases; and I have approved their Report on the recommendation of the Commander-in-Chief.
