Sir B. EYRES MONSELL
The total value of the regulation kits of these men, if all the articles were new, would be about £10 per head. The kits actually taken away by the men were not new and the value cannot be stated precisely. The 21 naval ratings received 13s. each plain clothes gratuity and two of the three Royal Marines 10s. each, the third being given a suit of plain clothes in lieu, at his own request.
