HC Deb 05 March 1919 vol 113 cc422-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the next of kin of officers and men who served in the Gallipoli campaign and were killed will receive the Gallipoli medal on behalf of their fallen relatives; and whether a similar practice will be followed with regard to the 1915 star and any other medals or decorations that may be granted?


Yes, Sir. All commemorative war medals earned by individuals who have died before their issue will be given to the legal representative or the next of kin, according to whether the deceased soldier died testate or intestate.
