HC Deb 17 May 1956 vol 552 c200W
Sir A. Bossom

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will take steps to ensure that, at the review in Hyde Park on 27th June by Her Majesty the Queen, holders of the Victoria Cross, who are incapacitated by age or former wounds, in a number of instances, will not be required to march past but, instead, will be inspected.

Mr. F. Maclean

This has been done. The invitations sent to holders of the Victoria Cross asked them to say if they would require a wheeled chair. The chairs will be pushed by orderlies from the holders' regiments.
