PRIZE MONEY.
Hansard 06 December 1922 vol 159 cc1735-6
Commander EYRES-MONSELL Prize bounty is a special award under Section 42 of the Naval
Prize Act, 1864, which is granted to the crews of His Majesty's ships present at the capture or
destruction of enemy armed vessels. The award is fixed at £5 for each member of the crew of the
enemy vessel taken or destroyed, and the claim has to be proved in the Prize Court. In the Battle
of Jutland the enemy ships sunk carried 4,537 persons, and the award made was £22,685, which
amount, after payment of the expenses of the claim, was distributed on the usual scale amongst
the 61,654 officers and men present in His Majesty's ships. The share of an able seaman worked
out at 5s. 1d., the smallness of the share being due to the very large number of persons among
whom the award was divided.
