§ SIR JOHN LENG (Dundee)
To ask the Secretary of State for War if he will inform the House what number of medals with clasps were issued to officers and men who served in South Africa, distinguishing the several classes of medals and recipients, and also the number of medals without clasps issued to nurses who served in the hospitals during the war.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The actual number of medals and clasps issued to officers and men cannot be obtained without a laborious examination of all the medal rolls concerned, a work which would delay the distribution of those still unissued. The number of Queen's South African medals issued to nurses is 962.
