Not true. The Armed Guard was in every way a part of the Navy, and those who served in it were, and are, eligible for the same benefits as every other veteran. Incidentally, the term "regular" is used to distinguish the career sailor from the reservist. Most, but by no means all, of those who served in wartime were reservists, in for the duration of the war.
