HC Deb 05 January 1916 vol 77 cc938-9
12. Mr. CLOUGH

asked how many married and how many unmarried men of the rank and file have been awarded Victoria Crosses and distinguisshed conduct medals?


About 100 Victoria Crosses and about 5,000 distinguished conduct medals have been awarded, but to go through the records of all these individuals to determine the number of the married and unmarried, respectively, would entail more labour than I consider would be justified by the results.
