HC Deb 04 June 1913 vol 53 c859
1. Mr. KING

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty what is the position of Captain Trench and Lieutenant Brandon, who have lately been released from imprisonment in a fortress in Germany; whether these officers will be placed on the active list; and whether any notice will be taken of the offence for which they have been imprisoned?

The FIRST LORD of the ADMIRALTY (Mr. Churchill)

The officers referred to are in the position of other officers of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines on the active list not holding definite appointments, except that Lieutenant Brandon is borne on the books of one of His Majesty's ships for full pay. I have no statement to make at the present time.


Will the time that these gentlemen have been abroad count for promotion and for pensions just as if they had been at home?
