§ 43. Mr. H. Hynd
asked the Secretary of State for War whether it will be compulsory under his Regulations for a soldier who served one day ashore in Egypt in November or December last year to wear the medal which is being issued in that connection.
§ Mr. John Hare
The wearing of medals may be ordered on occasions which are prescribed in the Queen's Regulations for the Army.
§ Mr. H. Hynd
Does the Minister realise that some soldiers who have won decorations for honourable and gallant service will resent having to wear a medal to show that they were in Egypt, or were off-shore, for one day during the discreditable attack on Suez?
§ Dame Irene Ward
Will my right hon. Friend tell hon. Members opposite that their views are not acceptable to the men and women in this country who served, loyally and faithfully, the cause of their country?
