HC Deb 01 August 1944 vol 402 c1181W
Mr. Linstead

asked the Secretary of State for War whether, in order to raise the standard of efficiency of Home Guard instructors, he will consider making arrangements for selected Home Guard officers, possibly on the basis of one per battalion, to gain experience of modern warfare by sending them on an instructional tour with troops in Normandy.

Sir J. Grigg

The suggestion made by the hon. Member will be borne in mind, but he will appreciate that it is necessary to restrict visits to the front in Normandy to those whose presence is absolutely essential.
