HC Deb 05 July 1926 vol 197 cc1623-4W

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can see his way to sanction the insertion or addition of a number in the centre of the oak leaf granted for mention in despatches so as to signify the number of times, if more than once, that the recipient thereof has been so mentioned?


The recognition of more than one mention in despatches by the award of distinctive emblems, or by the addition of a number as suggested by the hon. Member, was considered before the existing emblem was approved in 1920, but was found to be impracticable.
