HC Deb 27 March 1919 vol 114 cc612-3W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether an officer who has served for three years as lieutenant-colonel commanding a battalion and subsequently has been employed as an area commander with the rank of lieutenant on the staff is entitled on demobilisation to have his service as lieutenant-colonel taken into consideration in computing his gratuity or is it assessed for the whole period on the lower rank?


If the officer in question held acting rank for a period exceeding six months, his gratuity is assessed on such rank. Perhaps my hon. Friend will communicate to me particulars of the case he has in mind.
