LJ. S. 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. Similar
exchanges have been made in the
sther branches of the armed services.
