Pension to be Awarded to Mr. Richard J. Butler
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 18th October, 1909.

Present, The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas there was this day read at the Board a Memorial from the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, of 14th August, 1909, in the words following, viz.:

Whereas by section three of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, etc.

And whereas we have had under our consideration the pension to be awarded to Mr. Richard J. Butler, C. B., on his retirement from the position of Assistant Engineer-in-Chief of Your Majesty's Navy:

And whereas it appears that under the existing Regulations he will be awarded a pension under the Civil Superannuation Acts in respect of his service at the Admiralty since 1875, but cannot receive any pension or Retired Pay in respect of his service as an Engineer Officer in the Royal Navy, which immediately preceded his service at the Admiralty:

And whereas we are of opinion that this Officer's naval service should reckon for increase of civil pension:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to authorize the service rendered by this Officer prior to his transfer to the Civil Service reckoning for pension on the scale of the Civil Superannuation Acts.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.

His Majesty, having taken the said Memorial into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to approve of what is therein proposed. And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.

Admiralty Orders in Council No. 160a

21st December 1906.

A.

Confidential Clerk and Keeper of Torpedo Records in H.M.S. "Vernon" — Increase of pay to Charles Herbert McKay, Pensioned Chief Writer

Whereas by an Order in Council of Her late Majesty bearing date the 3rd August 1897, the retention on the books of Your Majesty's Ship "Vernon'' of Charles Herbert McKay, Pensioned Chief Writer, in the special rating of Confidential Clerk and Keeper of Torpedo Records, was sanctioned on the following terms : —

  1. To receive pay at the rate of 8s. a day, increasing by 6d. a day annually to a maximum of 10s. a day, but not to be entitled to Victualling or any allowance in lieu, and
  2. To receive his Naval Pension in addition to his pay, but his service after being pensioned not to reckon for Civil Pension or for any increase of Naval Pension :

And whereas we are of opinion that the services of the said Charles Herbert McKay have been of such a nature as to render him deserving of an increase in his emoluments :

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased by Your Order in Council to sanction his rate of pay being advanced to a maximum of 13s. a day by annual increments of 6d. a day, the first increase to take effect from the 9th March 1907, the date following that on which he will complete ten years' service in the special rating.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.



1915 12 24
Pensioned Chief Writer Charles Herbert McKay
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 22nd December, 1915.

Present, The King's Most Excellent Majesty in Council.

Whereas there was this day read at the Board a Memorial from the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, of 29th November, 1915, in the words following, viz. :

Whereas by Section 3 of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, etc.

And whereas by Order in Council of 3rd August, 1897, sanctioning the retention on the books of Your Majesty's Ship ‘Vernon' of Charles Herbert McKay, Pensioned Chief Writer, in the special Rating of Confidential Clerk and Keeper of the Torpedo Records, it is provided that his service after being pensioned shall not reckon for Civil Pension or for any increase of Naval Pension

And whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council of 13th February, 1912, to approve of the said Charles Herbert McKay being granted the relative rank of Lieutenant, but without increase of pay or pension :

And whereas we are of opinion that in consideration of the long and valuable services rendered by Mr. McKay in this appointment he should be granted a higher rate of pension than that for which he is at present eligible, namely £40 6s. per annum :

We beg leave humbly to recommend that Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to approve of Mr. McKay being granted, on retirement, an addition to his present pension at the rate of £10 per annum for each year's service from the 1st November, 1915, subject to the proviso that he shall receive a pension of not less than £80 per annum.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in this proposal.

His Majesty, having taken the said Memorial into consideration, was pleased, by and with the advice of His Privy Council, to approve of what is therein proposed. And the Right Honourable the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty are to give the necessary directions herein accordingly.
