HC Deb 13 March 1913 vol 50 c419

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the authorities of the Admiralty refuse to give the same recognition to the Master of Surgery degree of the London University and to the corresponding degrees of the Oxford and Cambridge Universities as they give to the M.D. degree; and whether they decline, and, if so, why, to allow surgeons in the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve to have the degree of M.S. inserted after their names in the Navy List, whereas they permit the degree of M.A., M.D., and M.B. to be so inserted?


Instructions will be given that in future issues of the Navy List the letters M.S. shall be inserted after the names of medical officers of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve who hold the degree of Master of Surgery.
