HC Deb 16 December 1943 vol 395 cc1684-5
46. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the Prime Minister when chevrons and wound stripes will be issued to those qualified; and, in view of the fact that those granted in the last war were subsequently taken away, whether he can state the intention in this respect with regard to those awarded for this war?

Mr. Attlee

Chevrons and wound stripes have been manufactured and issued to Departments up to the total demanded. Instructions for issue and wear are in course of preparation. It is the intention that the point referred to in the second part of the Question shall be considered after the cessation of hostilities.

Sir J. Lucas

Shall we have a guarantee that they will be issued before they are taken away?

Mr. Attlee

Yes, Sir.
