HC Deb 31 July 1916 vol 84 cc2108-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will direct that soldiers and sailors who received wounds in His Majesty's service prior to 4th August, 1914, shall enjoy the honourable distinction of wearing a distinguishing badge in the same way as soldiers who have been wounded after that date?


No, Sir; it is considered desirable to confine this distinction to those who have been wounded in the course of the present War.
