HC Deb 16 May 1928 vol 217 cc1025-6
37. Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Secretary of State for Air the number of casualties in the Royal Air Force from 1st January, 1928, to 12th May, 1928, and the corresponding casualties in the Air Forces of France, Germany, America, and Italy in that period?


As regards the Royal Air Force, the number of deaths as a result of flying accidents during the period named was: Royal Air Force personnel, 26; Navy, 3; Army, 2. In addition one Royal Air Force pilot was shot down in action. In regard to casualties in other Air Forces, I regret that no authoritative figures are available.

Sir W. de FRECE

Does my right hon. Friend propose to publish an analysis of the causes of these casualties?


No, Sir; I do not propose to publish details further than those which I published last year.

Forward to
