HC Deb 20 February 1922 vol 150 c1520W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty whether the words, "if qualified for the award of a Long Service pension, 1½d. a day for each complete year of pensionable service," in Admiralty Fleet Order No. 13 of 1922 apply to any period or only to such men as may have completed 22 years' service?


The words referred to apply only to men who may have completed the minimum qualifying service necessary for the award of a Long Service pension,i.e., 21 years for Marines and 22 years for seamen.
