HC Deb 12 March 1941 vol 369 cc1301-2W
Mr. Keeling

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether officers and men of the Royal Air Force who are wounded or injured daring action or flight against the enemy will be permitted to retain acting sank and pay?

Sir A. Sinclair

I am glad to say that R.A.F. officers and airmen holding acting rank, who are struck off the strength of their units on account of wounds or injuries received in action or on operational flights against the enemy, will in future be allowed to retain their acting rank for a period up to three months from the date of removal from duty.
