Boy Soldiers

A boy soldier who was serving on a regular or territorial enlistment would receive a reduced level of war gratuity.

If the boy had served only at home he would receive a £2 basic war gratuity followed by a payment of 2s 6p per month after the first 12 months.

If he served overseas he would receive a £2 basic war gratuity with a payment of 10s per month after the first 12 months.
