§ 78. Mr. DUKE
asked the Secretary of State for War, whether there is a necessary period of delay between the award and the presentation of medals for efficiency granted to members of the Territorial Forces; and whether such a medal, which was stated in an Army Order of 1st April to have been awarded to Sergeant G. H. Vooght, of the 7th Battalion of the Devonshire Regiment, is likely to be shortly presented to that non-commissioned officer?
§ Colonel SEELY
The awards are made and published periodically, and before issue names and corps of the recipients have then to be stamped upon the rims of the medals. The medal in question was sent to Sergeant Vooght's commanding officer on the 23rd July.
