§ 68. Mr. REID
asked the Secretary of State for India whether the transfrontier operations for the protection of Peshawar and its neighbourhood, which 1779 took place from 14th October, 1930, to 24th March, 1931, will be recognised as active service; and whether the troops engaged therein will be entitled to a general service medal, seeing that the British and Indian troops so employed suffered hardships and appreciable casualties in these operations?
§ Mr. WILLIAM WHITELEY
