HC Deb 22 June 1925 vol 185 c1079

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, seeing that a sailor long-service pensioner receives 5d. a day addition to his pension at the age of 55 and 4d. a day at the age of 65 and if the pensioner joins the Royal Fleet Reserve and does a certain number of drills he gets 5d. at the age of 50 and 4d. at the age of 60, he can see his way to institute a similar system in the Army, especially as such a method has the advantage of keeping in touch with the service and preserves their physique and efficiency?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the WAR OFFICE (Captain Douglas King)

No, Sir.
