HC Deb 27 October 1919 vol 120 c280
Lieut.-Colonel MOORE-BRABAZON (by Private Notice)

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Air Ministry whether he has made any arrangements with the United States Government for the building of a Rigid Airship in this country for the United States Navy?

Major-General SEELY

Arrangements have been made between the United States Navy and the Air Ministry by which the Airship R. 38 embodying the newest features in design and construction will be completed without delay. The vessel will be handed over to United States Naval personnel on completion, and will proceed to America with her American crew as soon as the shed to house her is ready. The United States Navy will take over the vessel at cost price, the Royal Air Force undertaking the training of the American Naval personnel, free of cost except pay and rations.
