HC Deb 05 December 1951 vol 494 c258W
79. Mr. Gough

asked the Secretary of State for War to what extent the troops in Malaya are issued with flame throwers; and whether this equipment is up to date and satisfactory.

Mr. Head

Two types of flame thrower are in use in Malaya. One is carried by the man operating it and the other is used from a vehicle. Stocks of these equipments are adequate. Both types are up to date, and I think that their performance is unsurpassed by similar equipments used by other armies.
