§ Mr. Head
At the peak more than 11,000 men were directly employed on flood relief work. Damaged clothing and equipment are being replaced without charge and as far as possible loss of leave caused by these duties is being made good. Individuals who have rendered specially meritorious service will be considered for recommendation for the appropriate awards.
§ Colonel Gomme-Duncan
Is my right hon. Friend aware that the Services, including the Army in particular, do not look for public recognition for doing their job, which they are very pleased to do on behalf of the country?
