They also will receive the emergency increase. As regards naval hospitals, active service ratings (sick berth staff) are employed, supplemented during the War by St. John's Ambulance men; and no advances have been made to these other than those to which they are entitled under the Regulations, by service, and an additional ½d. a day messing or victualling allowance. The surgery attendants and assistant surgery attendants in the dockyards have participated in the emergency increase of 3s. a week as from the 28th March, 1915.
