I refer my hon. Friend to the answer I gave on 10 October 2013, Hansard, columns 414-15W.

There are no plans to institute a specific award for those who were members of the Coleshill Auxilliers. The auxiliary units were listed as Home Guard units, and, as such, members who completed three years service in the United Kingdom qualify for the Defence Medal. In addition, surviving members may apply for the Armed Forces Veterans Badge.
