§ MAJOR RASCH
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the Volunteer decorations in Essex were sent by parcel post; and whether he would consider the advisibility of a public presentation in other cases?
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR WAR (Mr. CAMPBELL-BANNERMAN,) Stirling, &c.
The decorations were issued in the Eastern District under the arrangements made by the General Officer Commanding, of which the War Office has no knowledge. As regards the future, these decorations will be presented at a parade; or other suitable assembly of Volunteers in uniform.
