HC Deb 10 February 1915 vol 69 c576
3. Colonel YATE

asked when the medal and prize money for services performed by the Royal Navy and Royal Indian Marine during the operations for the prevention of gun-running in the Persian Gulf during the years 1909–14 will be issued?


Steps are being taken by the Admiralty to compile the medal rolls for the Royal Navy, but the participation of the Royal Indian Marine is a question for the India Office. Gratuities in lieu of prize money have been distributed for captures by His Majesty's ships up to May, 1910. No amount is yet available for captures subsequent to that date, but the India Office have been asked as to their contribution towards the expense.
