HC Deb 16 November 1882 vol 274 cc1548-9

asked the Secretary of State for War, If there is any reason for excluding officers of the Veterinary De- partment from receiving at the hands of Her Majesty the docorations to be given at the Royal Review on Saturday next to every other branch of the Service serving in the late Egyptian campaign?


In reply to the hon. Member, I have to say that I entirely fail to understand his Question. I am not aware that Her Majesty contemplates giving any decoration at the approaching Review; nor am I aware of any intention to exclude the Veterinary Department from any distinctions of medals or decorations which Her Majesty may be pleased personally to make.
