HC Deb 13 April 1910 vol 16 c1220

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he would recommend that men of the Royal Naval Reserve who receive the long service and good conduct medal should be given at the same time some gratuity or some addition to their pension similar, though not necessarily equal in amount, to the gratuities and increase of pension which men of the Navy are given when they receive the same medal?


The conditions of service of men of the Royal Navy and of the Royal Naval Reserve are so different that no analogy can be drawn between them. I regret that I am unable to make the recommendation pressed upon me by my hon. Friend.
