§ Lieut.-Colonel Muirhead
As stated to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Thanet (Captain Balfour) on 2nd June last, six deaths are recorded as having taken place during the four years since Empire Air Day was initiated. The displays are organised and arranged by the Royal Air Force with the assistance of the Air League of the British Empire.
