§ MR. McCRAE (Edinburgh, E.)
To ask the Secretary of State for War if he can state the reason for the delay in distributing the war medals to the troopers of the Scottish Horse.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Arnold-Forster.) The examination of the claims for medals of men of the Scottish Horse has been a matter of considerable difficulty as a large proportion of them served in other corps prior to the formation of tins body. One roll containing 1,870 names was sent to Woolwich on the 10th ultimo, and the other roll, containing about the same number, is now in hand and will go to Woolwich shortly.
