asked the Secretary of State for War how many military tattoos or similar entertainments or demonstrations have been arranged and are to be arranged in the British zone of Germany; and for what purpose these take place.

Two tattoos have been arranged in the British zone of Germany. No plans have been made for further similar displays. The object of these tattoos is to demonstrate publicly the bearing and discipline of our troops and to encourage them to take a proper pride in their training, at the same time avoiding any glorification of modern war.
