§ Dr. MACNAMARA
Pensioners who are called up for naval service are entitled to receive the pay of their former naval rating, together with their pension. Those who have joined the Air Service have been required to enter into a new engagement. Under this they receive the special rates of pay payable in that Service for their new ratings. They thus cease to be pensioners called up for naval service. These rates of pay are higher than the pay and pension combined to which they would be entitled as naval ratings proper.
