§ Mr. Beswick
British Overseas Airways Corporation and a number of charter companies were recently invited, on behalf of the War Office, to submit tenders for charter flights for the transport of Service men and women between the United Kingdom and West Africa. It would be contrary to established practice to disclose their reply.
