AFTER October 1, 1956, all Army vehicles would have two rear lights and reflectors, but to save money, reflectors and an extra rear light would not be fitted to vehicles at present in service but likely to be discarded by then.
Mr. Antony Head, Secretary for War, gave this information last week when he received a safe-driving trophy for the Army from Lord Brabazon, senior vice-president of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents.
Mr. Head stated that the Army trained 22,000 drivers every year. Most were aged 18-20. The accident rate was falling. Safety certificates gained by men while in military service were valuable to them when obtaining civilian reinstatement.
