HC Deb 17 June 1920 vol 130 c1467W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the decision to grant to commissioned medical men a medal for war service, even when such service was given at home and for half time, he will consider the advisability of recognising in a like manner the services of civilian medical men who, while too old for commissions, have examined many thousands of recruits, as, for instance, such a one who has examined over 100,000 over a period of two years at depots in various parts of the country upon terms which barely exceeded personal and travelling expenses?


As I stated on Monday last in answer to a question by the hon. and gallant Member for Chelsea (Sir S. Hoare), no decision has yet been reached to grant a medal to those who rendered service at home in connection with the War.
