HC Deb 20 February 1935 vol 298 cc357-8W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air how many Japanese officers or members of the Japanese military air service have been trained in the Royal Air Force since 1919; how many are attached to the Royal Air Force at the present time; where they are stationed; and for what period of training?


Nine Japanese officers have undergone instruction in Royal Air Force establishments since 1928. Precise information for earlier years is not readily available, but only a slight addition to the above figure would be involved. At the present time one officer is undergoing a course of instruction, of two months' duration, at the Home Aircraft Depot, Henlow.
