HC Deb 18 November 1936 vol 317 c1805W
Captain PLUGGE

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty whether all reasonable opportunities are taken to arrange practices involving co-operation between units of the Royal Navy, the Fleet Air Arm and Royal Air Force reconnaissance craft, and flying boats not actually comprised within the Fleet Air Arm?


Yes Sir. There are standing instructions to all naval commands to avail themselves of every opportunity by endeavouring to arrange with Air Force authorities for such exercises when naval units are passing through areas in which Royal Air Force units could co-operate. There are also occasional set piece exercises between specially organised naval and air forces.
