  • Description

    Continuing his tour of British Forces in Germany the Duke of Edinburgh piloted his plane to Wildenrath Airfield, arriving 13 minutes late because of bad visibility.

    He then inspected units of the 2nd, Tactical Air Force with Air Marshal Sir Humphrey Edwards, the Commander in Chief. Afterwards he drove to Muenchen-Gladbach for a short briefing on the 2nd. Tactical's work, where it is intended to set up an atomic bomb flight.

    At the nearby Brueggen airfield, where two squadrons of Canberras are based, he had lunch. When his tour of this station was completed he went to the Commander in Chief's house for tea, and later dined with the officers a Muenchen-Gladbach.

    Tomorrow the Duke will resume his inspection of the 2nd. Tactical, and later will stay, privately, at the Wolfsgarten Castle near Darmstadt, south of Frankfurt.
