HC Deb 01 August 1941 vol 373 c1669W
Sir L. Everard

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in view of the fact that serving officers in the Household Cavalry and the Brigade of Guards were, up to the outbreak of war, obliged to provide themselves with full-dress uniforms, they will be paid full compensation in cases where it is lost or destroyed through enemy acton in Great Britain?

Captain Margesson

Compensation will be paid from Army funds assessed under the conditions of Allowance Regulations, 1938, in respect of articles of full-dress uniform damaged or destroyed by enemy action in Great Britain, if and when it is necessary for officers to replace the articles for the further performance of their military duties, and provided the claimant has not received payment from any other source.
