HC Deb 28 February 1917 vol 90 c2017
21. Mr. O'LEARY

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War, whether an order has been issued prohibiting officers and men who have returned from the Expeditionary Force from wearing while under the Irish command in Ireland the distinguishing badges they wore at the front; whether the officers and men in the 8th and 9th Munsters have under this order been told to remove the shamrock worn on each shoulder; will he say what is the object of this order; and will he see that it is cancelled?


I have no information as to the badge, which my hon. Friend informs me is worn by such troops, nor of any order prohibiting such a badge in Ireland; but I will make inquiries and inform my hon. Friend of the result.
