§ MR. MANSFIELD (Lincolnshire, Spalding)
To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will say whether the Army Order in South Africa to the effect that all medal rolls were to be rendered before 31st July, 1901, was complied with; and can he say whether the medals for these rolls have all been distributed; and whether any regiments which proceeded to South Africa after July, 1901, have received their medals.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The reply to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative. As regards the second part, the medals of all the regiments which proceeded to South Africa after 31st July, 1901 have been issued, with one or two exceptions where the rolls have been sent to Woolwich for medals to be issued or the rolls themselves are still under examination at the War Office.
