HC Deb 16 December 1943 vol 395 c1701W
Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for War, in view of the fact that the R.N. and R.A.F. are already wearing the ribbon of the 1939–43 star, when the corresponding permission will be issued to the Army to do the same?

Mr. A. Henderson

The final and complete instructions about the issue of this star must await the decisions which will be taken as a result of the forthcoming Debate on these matters. As this Debate cannot be held until after the Recess, interim instructions covering the issue of the Star ribbon in cases which are not in doubt will shortly be issued.
