HC Deb 07 February 1893 vol 8 c678
MR. COLSTON (Gloucester, Thornbury)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether, having regard to the important position occupied by Volunteer non-commissioned officers, the Government contemplate extending to them the long service decorations already granted to officers of the Force?


As the hon. Member is aware, the Volunteer decoration has been quite recently conferred upon officers, and the process of distribution is not yet concluded. But I have already received fron various quarters suggestions for a similar recognition of the services of non-commissioned officers, and I will give every consideration to the subject.
