HC Deb 16 May 1919 vol 115 cc1935-6W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the late Captain C. G. Hibbert, l/4th Battalion, Loyal North Lancashire Regiment, proceeded to France on 5th May, 1915; whether he was killed on 5th June, 1915; whether he is entitled to the 1914–15 Star; and, if so, why the medal, in spite of repeated applications, has not been sent to his next-of-kin?


Captain C. G. R. Hibbert was reported missing 16th–18th June, 1915, and his death has since been presumed for official purposes. He qualified for the award of the "1914–15 Star," and the decoration will be sent to his next-of-kin or legal representative when it is ready for issue.
