HC Deb 19 December 1916 vol 88 c1322W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the Secretary to the Admiralty whether something can be done for the commanders who were entitled to retire from the Navy prior to or during the War, in view of the small-ness of their number and the relatively advantageous position enjoyed by those commanders who did retire from the Navy and afterwards came back, this advantage being considered from the point of view of rank, pay, and provision of new uniform?


The Admiralty is unable to see its way to adopt the suggestion of my hon, and gallant Friend.
