HC Deb 19 October 1916 vol 86 c741W

asked the Secretary of State for War what arrangements has been made for the distribution of badges to those entitled to them on account of having been discharged from the Army owing to "wounds or physical disabilities contracted during the present War?


Silver war badges are issued to approved applicants, in the case of officers, nurses and civilians direct from the Deputy Director of Ordnance Stores, Woolwich Dockyard; in the case of warrant officers, non-commissioned officers and men, through the officer in charge of Records of the units with which they served. Instructions on the subject were published in the Press on the 16th of September, 1916, together with a notification that a pamphlet containing full information as to whom individuals should apply, could be obtained from any Post Office. Supplies of these pamphlets have been distributed to the Post Offices throughout the United Kingdom.
