HC Deb 14 March 1928 vol 214 cc1919-20

asked the Secretary of State for War whether arrangements are being made for any military tattoos this year; and, if so, the dates and the towns where they will be held?

Mr. F. C. THOMSON (Vice-Chamberlain of the Household)

I have been asked to reply. The organisation of military tattoos is, subject to certain conditions, left to the discretion of the General Officer Commanding-in-Chief of the Command concerned. The only tattoos in 1928 of which my right hon. Friend is at present aware are at Aldershot from 19th to 23rd June and at Tidworth, probably in August.


In the event of another tattoo being decided upon, will the hon. and learned Gentleman draw the attention of the Secretary of State for War to the fact that there is an important place known as the Crystal Palace which belongs to the nation, and which might be utilised for this purpose?
