HC Deb 28 November 1950 vol 481 c131W
94. Mr. Low

asked the Secretary of State for War whether the British battalions of the 27th Commonwealth Brigade have been provided with vehicles and weapons suitable for conditions of extreme freezing in view of the fact that until recently it was intended to return them to Hong Kong this year.

Mr. Strachey

The vehicles and weapons with which the British troops in Korea are provided are of normal type. They are, however, considered suitable for the Korean climate with the aid of special cold weather lubricants and anti-freeze solution, the supply of which has been arranged.

97. Mr. D. Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for War if the necessary forms by which personnel of His Majesty's Forces apply to be included in the Register of Electors are available to our Forces in Korea.

Mr. Strachey


101. Mr. Kaberry

asked the Secretary of State for War why he cannot yet give the details required concerning the death on 25th October from wounds sustained on 22nd September on active service in Korea of Gunner Mitchell of Leeds.

Mr. Strachey

I am extremely sorry that these details are not yet available. Every effort is being made to obtain them from the American authorities.
