HC Deb 15 June 1896 vol 41 c1071
CAPTAIN CHALONER (Wilts, Westbury)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India, whether, inasmuch as the India Medal was given for the 1863 Waziri Expedition, and also for the 1895 expedition against the same tribe, when the only fight (viz., at Wano) was previous to the expedition being sent, and out of which it arose, he will consider the question with a view to granting the Indian Medal to those who took part in the 1881 expedition in which there was a fight?


I can only refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my predecessor to a somewhat similar question on the 23rd July 1894, nor could I re-open the question by reconsidering the request to grant a medal for an expedition which took place 15 years ago.
