CHAPTER 10 … Or any hostile act by or against a belligerent power

Miller's Marine War Risks

Page 66 CHAPTER 10 … Or any hostile act by or against a belligerent power … Or any hostile act by or against a belligerent power 10.1 These words were not included in the f.c. & s. Clause until the 1943 version, and then only in a heavily qualified form. The reasons for the decision of Alan Jackson’s Committee in 1983 to exclude “warlike operations” from the new MAR Form are described in Chapter 1 . Its place was taken by the wholly new insured peril of “war”, which in turn was reinforced by “or any hostile act by or against a belligerent power”, promoted for the first time to the full standing of an insured peril in its own right from its previously obscure position. Whilst, as noted in Chapter 6 , there are still a number of unanswered questions about “war” as an insured peril, it can still be regarded as definite and precise.
