HC Deb 23 March 1960 vol 620 cc43-4W
66. Mr. Drayson

asked the Secretary of State for War how many members there are of the Armed Forces still living who were awarded the Military Medal in the 1914–18 war; and what would be the cost of awarding each of them a gratuity of £20 per annum.

Mr. Soames

About 116,000 Military Medals were awarded in the first world war, but I have no record of the number of holders still living.
