"Flight International"  (May 4, 1956) .....

No. 56 Squadron Standard.

Last Friday the Duchess of Kent presented a Standard to No. 56 Sqn. during a ceremony at Waterbeach, Cambs.

In command of the parade was Maj. J. E. H. Kaisin, Belgian Air Force, No. 56 Squadron's C.O. The flights were commanded by F/L. J. V. E. P. Carter and Capt. C. G. Gillespie, U.S.A.F., an American officer on exchange posting.

Music was provided by the Central Band of the R.A.F. and the standard was dedicated by the Rev. Canon A. S. Giles, Chaplain-in-Chief of the R.A.F.
