HC Deb 13 May 1918 vol 106 cc4-5
4. Mr. HOGGE

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether men in the mercantile marine are entitled to wear the chevrons for service; and, if not, whether any arrangement is to be made?


Under the recent Admiralty Order, officers and men of the mercantile marine serving under special naval engagements in His Majesty's ships and auxiliaries are eligible for chevrons for sea service during the War.
