HC Deb 09 March 1920 vol 126 c1078
13. Colonel NEWMAN

asked the Secretary of State for War whether a decoration will be awarded to the officers and men who served in any of the Russian Expeditionary Forces?


Officers and men who served on the establishment of a unit with the Russian Expeditionary Forces will be entitled to receive the British Medal and the Victory Medal. In the event of clasps being awarded, they will also receive the appropriate ones.

Colonel NEWMAN

Supposing an, officer served with Denikin, does he get a medal?


Yes, he will get the Victory Medal and the British Medal.

Lieut.-Colonel A. MURRAY

Is it proposed to issue a clasp for this particular expedition and for no other expedition?


The whole question of clasps has been the subject of the most careful investigation, and I am not prepared to deal in a piecemeal fashion with the general issue of clasps.
