HC Deb 07 March 1917 vol 91 cc410-1W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War if he will cause to be returned to Mrs. Eamonn Kent all the articles of value taken from her house by the military, under martial law last May, especially the gold medal won by her late husband for pipe music at the Ard-Theis of 1906, bearing name and date engraved in Irish, and an antique sword dating from 1688 and of no present military value?


Every effort has been and still is being made to trace the articles claimed by Mrs. Kent, and all that have been found have been returned to her. The medal cannot be traced, and the sword is not in possession of the military authorities as far as can be discovered.
