HC Deb 29 October 1919 vol 120 c692W

asked the Secretary of State for War if the small printed scroll or memorial being sent out to the relatives of fallen soldiers is the only one to be received by them; whether it was a promise by the Government that such scroll or memorial should be in metal of some kind; and can some better scroll in metal be given to those whose relatives lost their lives in the War?


The scroll on which the name and regiment of the fallen officer or soldier are inscribed is not the only memorial which is to be sent to the next-of-kin. As announced in the Press of the 20th March, 1918, a bronze plaque as well as the scroll will also be sent to them. Distribution of the bronze plaque will commence next week.
