HC Deb 10 June 1941 vol 372 cc55-6W
Lieut.-Colonel Boles

asked the Secretary of State for War what principle guides the announcement of units taking part in engagements with the enemy; and whether, in view of the fact that another Department have announced the naval units engaged in the sinking of the "Bismarck," he will publish the military-units which took part in the Grecian expedition?

Captain Margesson

The principle followed by my Department is to give as much information as possible regarding the units taking part in active operations, provided that no assistance is thereby afforded to the enemy. In accordance with this principle, the names of the regiments which took part in the recent campaigns in Greece, Abyssinia and Crete will be published within the course of the next few days.
