55. Captain HALL
asked the Secretary of State for War if naval pensioners are eligible for employment in His Majesty's Yeomen of the Guard and at the United Service Institution; if so, the number employed; and, if not, the reason therefor?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. T. Shaw)
Naval pensioners are not eligible for appointment as Yeomen of the Guard, a body which is military in origin and character. The Royal United Service Institution is a private institution. I understand that a certain number of naval pensioners are employed there.
