HC Deb 25 March 1941 vol 370 c410
15. Mr. Bellenger

asked the Secretary of State for War whether officers and men holding acting rank who arc struck off the strength of their units on account of wounds or injuries received in action, will be permitted to retain their acting rank with appropriate pay and allowances during the period they are recovering from their wounds or injuries?

Captain Margesson

I am about to issue instructions that officers and other ranks who are wounded while holding any higher-paid acting or temporary rank may retain such rank while unfit for up to three months from the date of their removal from duty on account of wounds.
