41. Viscount Castlereaģh

asked the Secretary of State for War if, following the precedent of the ist and 8th Armies, he will grant to the 2nd Army the right to wear the numeral 2 on their medal ribbon.

Sir J. Griģģ

I would refer my Noble Friend to a reply given by the Deputy Prime Minister on 13th March, in answer to a Question by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Penrith and Cockerrnouth (Lieut.-Colonel Dower), relating to campaign stars. It is clear that emblems and stars cannot be dealt with separately.
