HC Deb 24 October 1918 vol 110 cc949-50W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Under-secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that men wounded in former wars may now receive the same concessions in respect to military service and the same rates of pension as men wounded in the present War, he will also grant them the gold stripe, as given to men who have been wounded since 4th August, 1914?


The wound distinction was introduced to meet the peculiar circumstances connected with the present War, and it is not proposed to extend the conditions of award so as to include men wounded in previous wars.
