HC Deb 20 March 1919 vol 113 c2258W

asked the Secretary of State for War when a war medal is to be issued to officers and men who fought in the last two years of the War?


I regret it is not yet possible, to state the date on which war medals will begin to be issued, but arrangements are being expedited as much as possible.


asked the First Lord of the Admiralty if it is the intention of the Admiralty to grant any posthumous honour to the late Lieutenant Commander G. S. White for his gallantry in forcing the Dardanelles in Submarine E14 with a view to torpedoing the "Goeben," in January, 1918, or to grant any reward to the survivors?


The question of awards to officers and men of E14 is under consideration with other cases in which the evidence of survivors, who took part in the enterprise, has only become available on their release from captivity, under the terms of the Armistice.
