HC Deb 07 July 1953 vol 517 c73W
2. Mr. Dodds

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will permit the blue walking-out uniforms worn by lance-corporals and privates in the Coronation procession to be retained by them; and what other plans he has for their use in future.

Mr. Head

I regret that I cannot agree to this. No. 1 Dress is being provided for the Regular Army rank by rank and this year we are using these uniforms to make a start on issues to corporals.
