§ SIR MANCHERJEE BHOWNAGGREE (Bethnal Green, N.E)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he has received the report or information, called for by his predecessor, regarding the services rendered during the war in South Africa by the Natal Volunteer Ambulance Corps, which was formed from the local British Indians residing in Natal; and whether any action has been taken in regard to the grant of Queen's Medals to the members of the corps.
§ MR. BROMLEY DAVENPORT
Yes, Sir. The information concerning the services of this corps has been received, and the leaders of the corps, 32 in number, inclusive of Dean Booth, who acted also as medical officer, have been granted Queen's Medals. The further question of the grant of medals to the sirdars and bearers of the corps has been referred to the General Officer Commanding for report.
