HC Deb 16 November 1916 vol 87 cc1014-5W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the question of gratuity to officers incapacitated as the result of frostbite has been finally considered by the War Office?


It has been decided that this and other cases of injury arising from some special risk due to war conditions, and where reasonable precautions were not neglected by the officer, may be treated for compensation purposes as though it had occurred in action.
