Batmen (Duties)

Part of Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force – in the House of Commons at 12:00 am on 2nd November 1955.

Alert me about debates like this

Mr. Ward:

We need batmen for various essential duties in messes, and to provide personal service for officers, particularly in looking after their kit. I am not prepared to deny batman service to officers living in married quarters, but Commands have been reminded that the service should not exceed that provided for single officers. I have also decided that no National Service batman is to be employed in an officer's married quarter unless he volunteers for this work.
