HC Deb 13 October 1943 vol 392 c871
45. Rear-Admiral Beamish

asked the Prime Minister whether he will have inquiries made into special services rendered by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution lifeboats and crews during the war, and which have been no less arduous and perilous than those of the Air Sea Rescue Service; and, if convinced of this, extend the award of the 1939–43 Star to the lifeboat crews concerned and consider the issue of chevrons to them and some part of the personnel of the lifeboat service?

The Prime Minister (Mr. Churchill)

I am having this question considered.
