HC Deb 21 June 1921 vol 143 cc1072-3
23. Mr. F. THOMSON

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that certain British pre-war pensioners served during the War in Dominion forces, and that Army Order 325 of 1919 only provides for the re-assessment of pension of those pensioners who re-en- listed and rendered satisfactory colour service with British forces during the War, the provisions of the said Order can be extended to those British pre-War pensioners who enlisted and rendered satisfactory service with Dominion forces during the War?

Lieut.-Colonel STANLEY

It has been decided that, in the case of both officers and other ranks, service during the late War with a force serving under the British flag should count for re-assessment of pension as if the service had been rendered with the British forces.
