HC Deb 30 May 1927 vol 207 cc20-1
41. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Secretary of State for War when it is intended to complete the issue of war medals for service during 1914 to 1919; is he aware that many men who have been demobilised for years are still without medals to which they are entitled; and whether, in view of the desirability of presenting the actual medals in the lifetime of those who have earned them, he can expedite the present system of production and distribution?

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

The issue of medals for the Great War has been completed except in the case of men whose addresses are not known. Every possible step has been taken by means of Press notices and broadcasting to induce all those who are entitled to medals and have not yet received them to apply for them.


Do not the men want work instead of medals?
