HC Deb 18 November 1942 vol 385 c381W
Mr. Lipson

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he will so amend the Order under which the Territorial efficiency decoration is awarded as to make service in the Home Guard admissible in respect of this award?

Mr. A. Henderson

The Efficiency Decoration is intended to serve as a reward for long and meritorious service in an auxiliary force which involves a liability to train in peace and it would not, therefore, be appropriate for service in the Home Guard to be reckoned for this purpose.
