HC Deb 21 November 1917 vol 99 c1186

asked the Prime Minister if it is the intention of the Government to present to the next-of-kin of those who have sacrificed their lives during the War any memento or memorial certificate, recording the gratitude of the country for the services rendered; and, if so, will he consider as to a special form of such memento being given to those families who have lost their only son or sons or male representative?


Yes, Sir; but I cannot undertake that special forms of this memento can be devised for special cases such as my hon. Friend mentions. In fact, I think that such specialisation would be undesirable.
