Arms for Alien “pioneers” in Britain Planned

Replying to Geoffrey Mander in the House of Commons Anthony Eden, Minister for War, said British companies of the Auxiliary Military Pioneer Corps were completely equipped with rifles, and it was proposed to issue a percentage of rifles to certain of the companies of alien personnel. There was no difference in principle between British and alien companies; it was a question of supply and the claims of the Home Guard, he said.
