HC Deb 01 March 1920 vol 126 cc33-4

asked whether any and, if so, what recognition has been made to Nepal for her services in the War?


The Government of India have offered the Nepalese Government an annual present of 10 lakhs of rupees, as a mark of their high appreciation of the assistance rendered by Nepal during the War. It is understood that the offer has been accepted. The invaluable assistance rendered personally by the Prime Minister of Nepal has been recognised by the grant of the honorary rank of General in the British Army and by the bestowal of a high British decoration. Decorations have also been conferred on a number of distinguished Nepalese officers.

Sir J. D. REES

Is this in addition to any previously existing grant or a new departure?


It is a new departure.
