HC Deb 19 December 1945 vol 417 c1309
1. Captain Swingler

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many re- employed officers serving on VE-Day were in receipt of other ranks pensions in respect of previous service.

The First Lord of the Admiralty (Mr. A. V. Alexander)

I regret that the exact figure is not available, but a rough estimate of the number of those who, having previously been pensioned as ratings were serving as commissioned or warrant officers on VE-Day, is 1,500.
