HC Deb 15 May 1918 vol 106 cc376-7W

asked the Undersecretary of State for War whether the granting of the Territorial efficiency medal, earned by twelve years' continuous service, for which men qualified were invited to apply in October, 1916, has been postponed until after the War; and, if so, whether men entitled to the medal will be allowed now to wear the ribbon, as many of them may have no opportunity of wearing it after the War?


The answer to the first part of my hon. Friend's question is in the negative. As regards the latter part, the names of those to whom this medal has been awarded are published quarterly in an appendix to Army Orders. When the grant of a medal has been notified in Army Orders the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief may, pending the issue of the medal, authorise the wearing of the regulation riband.
