§ Captain KING
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether the issue of 1914–15 Star to officers and men of the Royal Navy has yet commenced; if not, what is the cause of the delay; and when will such issue be made, in view of the fact that other of His Majesty's Forces have already received this recognition of their services?
§ Sir J. CRAIG
The issue of the 1914–15 Stars to officers and men of the Royal Navy who are still serving began in June last and is now nearly completed. The Stars for those demobilised will be issued with the British War and Victory Medals, which are in course of preparation, and it is hoped to commence the distribution early in the spring of next year.
