HC Deb 27 January 1956 vol 548 cc61-2W
Mr. Llewellyn

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in order to facilitate the tracing of the addresses of certain holders of the Victoria Cross. he will arrange for the full Christian and surnames of holders, whose addresses are not known to his Department, to be circulated with the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Head

We have recently given wide publicity to the celebrations of the centenary of the Victoria Cross which are to be held, and all holders of the Victoria Cross or their nearest relatives have been asked to get in touch with the War Office. If nearer the time any holders of the Victoria Cross remain untraced, we will gladly publish their full names, but I do not think such a step necessary at this stage.
