April 28, 2010

PSD policy specialist responsible for this weekly list: J. Young



This proposal to establish a number for the Great
Britain’s Distinguished Service Order (DSO) was not necessary because
a number already existed for it, at CR4823. However, since the DSO is a
military decoration it should be classified in UB435.G8. The number
CR4823 has been cancelled and parenthesized and a reference has been
made to UB435.G8.

Subject Headings

Subdivisions to be added to lists of free-floating subdivisions:

H 1158, Materials

$x Service life

Other decisions:

Vila Real, House of

The House of Vila Real was aristocratic, but it was not
royalty (i.e., it was not the ruling family of a monarchy). The heading should be proposed as a family name, per Subject Headings Manual H 1574.

The proposal may be resubmitted.
