HC Deb 30 June 1927 vol 208 cc577-8

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether a naval seaman or marine who was discharged to modified pension before the great War and who subsequently returned for service during the War was allowed, after demobilisation, to count his war service for additional pension; and if the total service entitled him to the full pension of the rank held on demobilisation?

Lieut.-Colonel HEADLAM

Pre-War naval and Royal Marine pensioners who were mobilised for service in the late War were allowed to reckon their war service for the appropriate increase of pension for which they were eligible in respect of the combined service, including time served in petty officer and higher non-commissioned ranks.
