HC Deb 14 March 1945 vol 409 cc219-20
35. Major Sir Jocelyn Lucas

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty in view of the fact that it has been decided that Army officers are to retain on retirement the highest acting or temporary rank held in the present war, provided that the period for which the rank was held was not less than six months, have similar arrangements been made for Naval officers.

Mr. Alexander

This question is under consideration, but I am not yet in a position to make a statement.
