HC Deb 20 January 1944 vol 396 cc388-9W
Sir. J. Lucas

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if, in view of the fact that members of the Armed Forces discharged owing to wounds received in action are given a silver badge to wear when in mufti, he will authorise the issue of a similar badge to members of the C.D. services who are discharged through injury by enemy action when on duty.

Mr. H. Morrison

I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister to a Question on this subject by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Stroud (Flight Lieutenant Perkins) on 22nd September last. As the Prime Minister then suggested, this is a matter which might be raised when the subject of awards for war service is debated.
