HC Deb 16 February 1944 vol 397 c175
45. Mr. Lipson

asked the Prime Minister if he will give consideration to the issue of an appropriate certificate of appreciation to the nearest relative of each member of the Forces killed when on duty but not necessarily by enemy action.

The Prime Minister (Mr. Churchill)

A Royal Message is sent in all such cases. The question of the issue of a more permanent document will be considered on the conclusion of hostilities.
