§ 73. Briģadier-General Spears
asked the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that in the French Army, those who were entitled to wear wound stripes in the last war have received permission to wear them to-day; and whether, as a similar privilege would be greatly 523 appreciated by many who cannot be given the same posts of danger for reasons of age to-day, he will consider introducing the same measure in the British Army?
§ Mr. Hore-Belisha
If the wearing of wound stripes is revived in this war, I will certainly consider my hon. and gallant Friend's suggestion.
