§ MR. R. PIERPOINT (Warrington)
I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether he is aware that the 33rd Regiment served in India during the Mutiny; could he state -why the officers and men of the regiment have not received medals in recognition of their services; and whether medals will now be given the survivors of those who served?
§ THE UNDER SECRETARY or STATE FOR WAR (Mr. BRODRICK,) Surrey, Guildford
The Indian Mutiny Medal was intended only for troops engaged with the mutineers. The 33rd Regiment, though quartered in India at the time of the Mutiny, was not so employed, and therefore did not receive the medal.
