HC Deb 17 July 1940 vol 363 c210
45. Major Carver

asked the Prime Minister whether officers of the three Fighting Services who are discharged on account of wounds, physical disability, or medical grounds, will be allowed to retain the highest temporary rank held, provided they held such rank for a period exceeding three months, and that their service has been satisfactory?

The Lord Privy Seal (Mr. Attlee)

The matter to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers is under consideration, and it is hoped to announce a decision shortly.
