Orders of the Day — Nickel (Prohibited Uses) (4 Jul 1951)

Major Frederick Cundiff: For a very short time I thought that the hon. Member for Ayrshire, South (Mr. Emrys Hughes) was going to agree with us, but now that we know that he does not agree with us he will forgive me if I do not attempt to follow him. I rise to associate myself with all that was said by my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for Pudsey (Colonel Banks) and my hon. Friend the Member for Leeds, North-West...

Orders of the Day — Nickel (Prohibited Uses) (4 Jul 1951)

Major Frederick Cundiff: Could the hon. Gentleman tell us whether he has any hope at all of increased supplies? I take his speech to be most pessimistic.

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1951–52: MR. James Callaghan's Statement (12 Mar 1951)

Major Frederick Cundiff: It is always a privilege to be called to speak on the day that the House discusses the Navy Estimates. The Royal Navy and the command of the Royal Navy are as precious to us today as they ever have been in our long maritime history. I have always thought it to be an unfortunate policy that in the senior Service the Minister should sit in another place, but the First Lord has two lieutenants...

Orders of the Day — Navy Estimates, 1950–51; Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1949–50: Anti-Submarine Defence (22 Mar 1950)

Major Frederick Cundiff: I am sure that hon. Members on both sides of the House welcome the opportunity to debate defence against under-water attack. It is a special privilege for those of us who have been intimately, but not always pleasantly, associated with this form of warfare. Of all the hazards which have faced this country in two world wars no single hazard has ever brought us nearer to complete disaster and...

Orders of the Day — Gas (Special Orders) (5 Jun 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: I rise to support briefly what the hon. Member for Gorton (Mr. Oldfield) has said. It is, indeed, unfortunate that the hon. Member for the Exchange Division (Mr. Hewlett) is not in his place to-night owing to illness, as he has taken a very great interest in this case. The hon. Member for Gorton has very fully covered the ground, but I may add certain facts to those already stated. This is a...

Orders of the Day — Discharged Soldiers (Hospital Treatment) (31 May 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: It is not often that I find myself fn agreement with my hon. Friend the Member for Ipswich (Mr. Stokes), but on this occasion I would like to support his plea specially with regard to the question of plastic cases, and I speak with some little knowledge of this subject. It is a fact that during this war plastic surgery has come very much more into its own, probably because of the amount of...

Orders of the Day — Discharged Soldiers (Hospital Treatment) (31 May 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: Before my hon. Friend sits down, may I ask him whether his suggestion—

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1945: Air Services Supplementary Estimate, 1944 (15 Mar 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: My hon. and gallant Friend has not got the picture quite correctly.

Orders of the Day — Army Estimates, 1945: Air Services Supplementary Estimate, 1944 (15 Mar 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: Is it not a fact that Army officers are wearing wings? There are many cases of senior Army officers who qualified in France and at home in the last war and are able to put these pilot's wings up. The point with regard to the observer's wing is that this is something that was granted for war service. It was impossible to get the observer's wing in England. We were sent out of the country and...

Orders of the Day — Supply: Navy Estimates, 1945 (7 Mar 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: We have listened this morning to a moving and glorious account of our Navy at war and I think no one could tell the story better than the First Lord himself. I have listened to him on many occasions, and I think I have always ended up with the same feeling, the thrill of a school boy. The First Lord has to-day expressed his gratitude to the House, but I think this House would be only too glad...

Orders of the Day — Supply: British Army (R.F.C. Observer's Badge) (18 Jan 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: I wish to associate myself with what has been said by my hon. Friend the Member for Eye (Mr. Granville) and my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for The Hartlepools (Colonel Greenwell) with whom, I think, I share the privilege of having served in the R.F.C. They have covered the ground, and, very briefly, I would like to quote two cases. The first case is this: On a certain afternoon during...

Orders of the Day — Supply: British Army (R.F.C. Observer's Badge) (18 Jan 1945)

Major Frederick Cundiff: What is the difference between the wearing of the observer's badge and the wearing of the pilot's badge?

Orders of the Day — King's Speech: Debate on the Address (30 Nov 1944)

Major Frederick Cundiff: I welcome the pronouncement in the Gracious Speech from the Throne that we, with our Allies, are pressing the enemy on his own borders, and that, from the East and from the West, Germany is being invaded. This initial occupation of Reich territory is, for the Germans, the beginning of the end, and for us it is a pre-requisite of our victory to come. I am deeply conscious of my temerity and my...
