HC Deb 17 May 1944 vol 400 c198W
Sir G. Jeffreys

asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the usual period of service in Aden for members of the R.A.F.; how many, now on the spot, have served there for two to three years; and whether it is possible, on health grounds, to transfer such men to other stations

Sir A. Sinclair

The overseas tour of duty for R.A.F. personnel posted to Aden is three years. It is, however, the practice, so far as Service requirements permit, to allow men who have served for two years in Aden to complete their overseas tour elsewhere. It would not be in the public interest to disclose details of the personnel strength of this station.
