HC Deb 12 October 1916 vol 86 cc223-4W
Colonel YATE

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the 997 men who were wounded in the fighting against the rebels in the Irish rebellion have been forbidden to wear the distinctive stripe; and, if so, why they have been so refused?


Yes, Sir; the Army Council's decision was in the sense of the first part of the question. I think my hon. and gallant Friend will be able to see for himself on what grounds this decision was given.
