HC Deb 16 March 1885 vol 295 c1227

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, Whether it is intended to give to Naval Pensioners employed on the Permanent Staff of the Steam Reserve, and to Non-Commissioned Officers and men of the Royal Marines, employed on the Permanent Staff of the Auxiliary Forces, the advantages now accorded to Army Pensioners on the Permanent Staff?


(who replied) said: It is not intended to give pensioners employed in the Steam Reserve any additional pension for such service. The system on which pensions are given in the Navy is not analogous to that in force in the Army. Marine pensioners employed on the permanent Staff of the Auxiliary Forces will receive the same rate of extra pension as is accorded to Army pensioners.
