HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc393-4
38. Lieutenant-Colonel M'LEAN

asked the Secretary of State for War if he would consider the mentioning in dispatches of officers and men who have been recommended for reward by divisional commanders, but whose names did not pass beyond corps headquarters?


No, Sir. The mention in dispatches must necessarily be based upon the dispatches of the Commander-in-Chief.
