HC Deb 14 October 1941 vol 374 c1261W
Lieut.-Colonel Macnamara

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will consider recommending that service in the Home Guard be allowed to reckon for awards of the Territorial Decoration and Medal?

Captain Margesson

The Efficiency Decoration and Medal are intended to serve as rewards for long and meritorious service in an auxiliary force with a liability for training in peace and it would not, I think, be appropriate for service in the Home Guard to be reckoned for this purpose.
