HC Deb 22 July 1927 vol 209 c719W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether he can make a statement as to the extent warships have been moved about apart from their ordinary naval duties in order to render aid or search for aircraft during the present year?

Lieut. Colonel HEADLAM

Only one case of a British warship being ordered to search for missing aircraft has been recorded at the Admiralty this year—the case in question being that of the French airman Nungesser.
