§ MR. YERBURGH (Chester)
To ask the Secretary of State for War whether any of the recommendations of the commanding officers of Militia battalions that went to South Africa in 1901 have been favourably considered; and whether 1506 the services of these commanding officers have received any recognition.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Brodrick.) The reply is in the affirmative. Three commanding officers received rewards, and in all but one of the units which went out during 1901 officers or men received rewards. Six units which went out in December 1901 were placed in the same category as those which went out in 1902, the conditions being the same.
