HC Deb 07 November 1921 vol 148 c72W
Captain W. BENN

asked the Secretary of State for War whether any medal is being issued to men who were called up, but never served overseas; and what badges have been issued to them if invalided out of the service in such circumstances?


No war medal was granted for home service, except that the British war medal was awarded to personnel of coast defence batteries actually engaged with hostile vessels. As regards the last part of the question, such men received the silver war badge.
