HC Deb 15 November 1917 vol 99 c596W
Colonel FABER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for War whether the blankets in which men who have died for their country are buried are debited to the men's accounts after death; and whether blankets are issued free on joining the Army?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer which I gave on 9th May to my hon. Friend the Member for Merthyr Tydvil. Blankets are issued free for the use of warrant officers, non-commissioned officers, and men, but remain War Department property.
