HC Deb 19 June 1956 vol 554 cc89-90W
91. Lieut.-Colonel Bromley-Davenport

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what arrangements are being made for the celebration of Trafalgar Day, 1956.

Mr. Ward

In accordance with custom, the Royal Navy will mark the anniversary by dressing ship and hoisting Lord Nelson's signal. I have no doubt too that representatives of the Royal Navy will accept invitations to take part in parades and ceremonies organised by the Navy League to commemorate this time-honoured occasion. At Portsmouth, the usual service will be held on board Her Majesty's Ship "Victory".
