Senator MILLEN - The answers are -

1.   Yes, provided, of course, that his conduct throughout the six years of his service has been satisfactory.

2.   The regulations prescribe that : - " A good conduct badge shall be a high distinction conferred on a soldier below the rank of bombardier, as a token of good conduct, and shall be marked by a chevron worn on the left arm."

An exactly similar procedure exists in the British Regular Army. The fact of a soldier holding full non-commissioned rank is considered to be sufficient warrant that he is of good conduct, and the rates of pay of full non-commissioned officers have been determined on the understanding that such non-commissioned officers do not receive good conduct pay.
