HC Deb 27 March 1903 vol 120 cc469-70
MR. BRYCE (Aberdeen, S.)

To ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Tientsin corps of Volunteers, who rendered efficient service in the defence of Tientsin during the military operations in North China in 1900, complain that the clasp which has, along with a medal, been given to the rest of His Majesty's forces concerned in those operations is being withheld from them, the medal alone being offered; and whether he will further consider the matter with a view to awarding due recognition to these Volunteers, whose spirit and conduct were of value at a critical time.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The clasp has been already awarded in these cases.
