HC Deb 14 December 1900 vol 88 cc825-6
Sir HERBERT MAXWELL (Wigtonshire)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether the gratuities granted to officers and men of the Army for war service in South Africa, will be extended to include those Militia battalions which, having volunteered for active service, have been employed in garrison duty abroad during the war.


The gratuity will only be issued to the officers and men, whether Imperial or colonial, who have served in the South African command from the 10th October, 1899, to such date as may hereafter be notified in Army Orders.
