HC Deb 26 March 1912 vol 36 c213

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty if he is aware that men under the rank of chief petty officer are allowed, at their own expense, to wear honorary badges for good conduct but do not receive pay for the same, though the same men do obtain increase of pension for such badges; and if he will consider the granting of pay for these badges?


The question as to the grant of pay for good conduct badges to those ratings at present entitled to honorary badges has received the careful consideration of the Board of Admiralty, but it is not regarded as advisable to make the change proposed.
