HC Deb 10 February 1960 vol 617 cc47-8W
61. Mr. Boyden

asked the Secretary of State for Air if he will list the occasions and places where the Royal Air Force ceremonial unit provided guards of honour, escorts, ceremonial demonstrations and display parties in January 1959; and if he will give the number of officers, non-commissioned officers and airmen on duty at each ceremony.

Mr. W. J. Taylor

January, 1959, was the quietest month in the unit's history; there was only one engagement, a demonstration at Halton in which one officer, one N.C.O. and 24 airmen took part. The unit was thus able to prepare for the very heavy programme of over 100 engagements which it fulfilled with much credit during the remainder of the year.
