Britain, Canada Seek To Standardize \rms And Training The United States, Great Britain tnd Canada announced on Decem>er 19 a united plan for standardizng their arms and military trainng. The program, it is stated, is limed at correcting and eliminatng technical differences which in;erfered with easy co-operation of ;he three powers in two world wars. Its purpose is to permit swift integration of their men and irms into a smoothly-functioning nilitary machine in event of another international conflict. The British Ministry of defense said technical experts of the three .-ountries have been working on standardization since 1947. They lave made considerable progress in preliminary studies, it is known, and have made recommendations for standardization of pertain k^y weapons. Leftist forces m-N^ptain opposed this co-operation, and in parliamentary debates called the Tiove toward arms standardization an aggressive weapon aimed at Russia. In connection with the standardization studies there have oeen frequent exchanges of miliKo + trraoi-i fho furn LCtl y JJCI auillltl ur. i vv 11 vt?w v? V nations on operational levels. American pilots have been assigned to fly and study Britain's jet bombers. At the same time British and Canadian officers have worked in developing and flying many American planes.
