HC Deb 25 April 1944 vol 399 c639W
Major Leighton

asked the Secretary of State for War whether a prisoner of war who, while in captivity, completes 18 years' service, war service counting double, is, if a Territorial, entitled to the T.D.

Sir J. Grigg

An application on behalf of an officer who is a prisoner of war for the award of the Territorial Efficiency Decoration is investigated, but his name is not submitted to the King until he is repatriated. I should add that the qualifying period for this decoration is 20 years.
