HC Deb 07 March 1962 vol 655 c63W
13. Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Civil Lord of the Admiralty whether it is still the custom to appoint foreigners to be honorary admirals and lieutenants in the Royal Navy; and how many people now occupy such posts.

Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing

Yes, but the award is made sparingly. There are seven such honorary officers in Her Majesty's Fleet. The names are given in the Navy List.
