W.ll fc-f= EIGHTEEN—THE MORNING AVALANCHE V Lubbock, Toxos, Friday, Februgyy 20, 1942 ia!i 4343 For The Avalanche-Journal Offices Ireat Britain Is Said Building Up Parachute And Air-Borne Invasion Army '. •/•„' •£•**&' i-.'-.fi-Ss- Offensive Seen For The Future By EDWARD W. BEATTIE United Pres Staff Correspondent LONDON Feb. 19.—Great Britain is building up a parachute and air-borne invasion army and producing still bigger tank and antitank guns War Secretary David Margesson said today in reviewing grim developments and future prospects on the world's war fronts. Great Britain must be maintained inviolate as a bridgehead for future APied operations against the Axis on the European continent the spokesman said in emphasizing an offensive attitude. Organization Progressing The organization of air-borne troops (big transport planes and gliders) is progressing he said, while a number of parachute and air-landing units already are organized. In regard to armored land for- cflE —the striking power for a future offensive against the Axis in Europe—he said that Britain now was working on production of still larger tank guns. At the same time, he added, defense against enemy tanks is being strengthened with production of anti-tank.guns of even greater penetrating power than any now in use., (Lord Beaverbrook, minister of production, recently said lhat the British were now putting out the most powerful anti-tank guns ever, built, capable of penetrating any tank armor.) Stands In Grave Danger Margesson said that Britain had not been giving the war effort 100 per cent cooperation and said this was attributable to lack of heavy air raids recently and the fact that recent reverses had not occurred close to England's shores. Ke warned, however, that Britain stands in grave danger. The world fronts were described &s grim, with the possibility still strong that Germany again would threaten the Russian Caucasus area by attacking through Turkey despite the Soviet victories on the eastern front. But Britain's position in the Middle East is improved, he continued, and armored forces in that area have been and still are being reinforced. Axis Said At Advantage Discussing developments in both Malaya and Libya, he asserted that British reverses in Libya were due to long lines of communications •and supply at a time when the Axis armies under Gen. Erwin Rommel had the advantage of shortened communcations due to their retreat. The British were unable to maintain forward lines in force sufficient to knock out Rommel, he added. "When the Axis counterattacked, this handicap was obvious and the British had to fall back, he said. The threat of an invasion of Britain continues very great he continued, supplementing "yesterday's statement by the ministry of •economic .-warfare that the Germans were increasing war production, including invasion gliders, to an unprecedented limit.
