§ 19. Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that Sergeant Harry 1091 Camm, Royal Army Service Corps, who was awarded the Military Medal, received from the Records Office, Woolwich Dockyard, a letter, dated 18th November, 1920, which stated that no particulars of the deed for which this award was made wore given, and that it was probably issued with the rations; whether he will explain why such a communication was addressed to a man who has received a decoration for services to his country; and whether he will state for what deed Sergeant Camm was awarded the medal?
§ Sir A. WILLIAMSON
The award of the Military Medal No. M.2/177616 Sergeant Harry Camm, Royal Army Service Corps, was announced in the "London Gazette," dated 20th August, 1920. Particulars of the deed for which it was awarded were not published, but I am sending the Noble Lord a copy of the official record. I am informed that no statement, such as suggested, or anything similar to it, was made in the reply to Sergeant Camm from the Officer-in-Charge of Records.
§ Lord H. CAVENDISH-BENTINCK
May I assure my right hon. Friend that I saw the communication myself in which the statement was made that the medal was issued with the rations?
