HC Deb 25 February 1930 vol 235 c2040
38. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary of State for War whether he can give particulars of any military tattoos that have been sanctioned by his Department for the year 1930?

The SECRETARY of STATE for WAR (Mr. T. Shaw)

The General Officers Commanding-in-Chief the Aldershot, Eastern, Northern and Southern Commands have authority, should they think fit, to permit a Command tattoo in 1930. I understand that in the Southern Command a tattoo will be held in August, and in the Aldershot Command in June, but that no definite derision has been reached in the other two Commands. Tattoos, other than the four mentioned above, may only be held with War Office authority, and up to the present, no such authority has been given for 1930.
