To what extent has the award of posthumous decorations been decided upon? For example, a complaint has been made to me concerning Pipe Major McLaughlan, now dead, who led the Eighth Army in the African campaign. Great regret is felt in the vicinity where he lived that no award has been made to him because he has died. This occurs in a great many cases. Would it not be possible for some posthumous award to take place?
