HC Deb 17 October 1945 vol 414 c1177W
Mr. C. S. Taylor

asked the Under-secretary of State for Air whether he will consider transferring to home establishment personnel of 45 years and over now serving overseas.

Mr. Strachey

No, Sir. This proposal would deprive overseas commands of the services of skilled and experienced senior personnel. The upper age limit for posting airmen (including corporals) to most overseas Commands is 42, and 50 for senior N.C.Os. and non-regular officers.
