HC Deb 11 January 1916 vol 77 c1452W
Mr. MacCaw

asked the Under-Secretary for War whether he will say what pay and allowances does an officer of the British Army draw when made prisoner of war?


The general rule is that-regimental officers are credited with full pay, and lodging, fuel and light, and field allowances. Staff officers receive Staff pay and field allowance for sixty-one days, after which they receive regimental pay and allowances if regimental officers, or half-pay and regimental allowances if not regimental officers. The issues made to the officer himself by enemy Governments are:—

Germany and Austria. Turkey.
To Captains and above £5 a month 4s. 6d. per day.
Subalterns £3 a month 4s. per day.
These sums are deducted from the amounts credited to the officer's personal account from Army funds.
