HC Deb 27 June 1940 vol 362 c616W
Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for Air whether the names of those taking part in raids on Germany or enemy occupied territory can be omitted from published reports so as to prevent any action being taken against them should they subsequently be taken prisoner?

Sir A. Sinclair

The names of those taking part in air attacks against the enemy are only published when they receive decorations for their services. I am not aware that any of those whose names have been made public in this way and who have fallen into the enemy's hands have suffered on account of this publicity. I therefore see no reason for varying the present practice.
