Re-organisation of the Schoolmaster Branch

1920 02 03
At the Court at Buckingham Palace, the 22nd day of January 1920.

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, dated the 17th day of January, 1920, in the words following, viz. :

Whereas by Section 3 of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865, it is enacted, inter alia, that all pay, pensions, and other allowances in the nature thereof, payable in respect of services in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force to a person being or having been an Officer, Seaman, or Marine therein, shall be paid in such manner and subject to such restrictions, conditions,, and provisions as are from time to time directed by Order in Council:

And whereas by Section 2 of the Officers of the Royal Naval Reserve Act, 1863, it is enacted, inter alia, that the Admiralty may enroll Officers of the Reserve to the Royal Navy under, and subject to, such Rules, Orders and Regulations as the Admiralty may, with the consent of Your Majesty in Council, from time to time establish:

And whereas by the Naval Forces Act, 1903, it is enacted that the Admiralty shall have power to; raise and maintain a Force to be called the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve, and that any volunteer enrolled under this Act, when serving for training afloat, or called out for, actual service, shall be deemed to be serving in Your Majesty's Naval or Marine Force within the meaning of the Naval and Marine Pay and Pensions Act, 1865

And whereas during the war certain changes in the rules governing promotion and the rates of full pay and retiring allowances of Officers of various ranks of Your Majesty's Naval, Marine and Reserve Forces have from time to time been deemed desirable and have, with the concurrence of the Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury, been introduced:

And whereas, with the consent of the Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury, pending a general revision of the pay of Officers, temporary bonuses were granted with effect from the 1st February, 1919, to all Officers of Your Majesty's Naval, Marine and Reserve Forces:

And whereas we are of opinion that the Regulations governing service promotion and retirement in certain ranks require further revision so as to place Officers of various Branches of the Royal Navy, Royal Naval Reserve and Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve on an equality as regards the age at which the several ranks may be attained, so far as possible, with due regard to the responsibilities and to the technical and professional knowledge required for the performance of the duties of the several ranks:

And whereas we are of opinion that Officers of the Royal Marines should be treated, in regard to their emoluments during active service and on retirement, similarly to Naval Officers, and further that there should be one scale of pay applicable to all such Officers whether belonging to the Royal Marine Artillery or to the Royal Marine Light Infantry and whether serving at sea or ashore:

And whereas we are of opinion that the scales of pay, half-pay and retired pay of Officers of Your Majesty's Naval and Marine Forces should be substantially increased in the higher ranks in view of the altered economic conditions arising from the war and for other reasons, and further that rates of unemployed pay should be introduced for certain ranks during periods of unemployment not exceeding a year:

We beg leave humbly to recommend that. Your Majesty may be graciously pleased, by Your Order in Council, to sanction the proposals contained in the Schedules annexed. hereto.

The Lords Commissioners of Your Majesty's Treasury have signified their concurrence in these proposals.
