§ Major HORE-BELISHA
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty how many pre-War naval and marine pensioners served in the Army during the War; if their war service counted; and if the scales of pension were raised at the naval rates appropriate to the ranks held on demobilisation?
§ Mr. AMMON
The actual numbers are not known, but it is estimated that they are comparatively few, probably less than 400. As regards the second and third part of the question, the war (service qualified for revision of the pre-War pension under post-War scales, but did not count as additional service for further reassessment.
