HC Deb 23 March 1910 vol 15 c1059

asked whether it is in accordance with the decision of the Army Council that officers holding temporary or honorary rank should have the prefix temporary or honorary placed before their rank and names in official directories issued under War Office authority; if not, could this decision be promulgated; and whether the honorary rank of captain is granted and not the rank of honorary captain, etc.?


In the Quarterly and Monthly Army Lists, to which the hon. Member presumably refers, the actual ranks held by officers are shown, whether substantive, temporary, or honorary. This is in accordance with Section 163 (d) of the Army Act. In reply to the last part of the question the honorary rank of captain is granted.
