HC Deb 06 June 1921 vol 142 cc1528-9W

asked the Secretary of State for War if an early decision will be taken with regard to the issue of war medals to those who served at Home on duty during the War, often under enemy fire, inasmuch as it would be a great satisfaction to many who would be entitled to the medal, if he so decide, to know that their services are going to be recognised, even although they will, under the circumstances, have to wait for the decoration?


As I stated on Tuesday last, in reply to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for Central Southwark (Mr. Gilbert), this question is now receiving careful consideration, and I hope a decision will not be long delayed.
