Dear Ministry of Defence,

Anti-flash clothing /gear was issued to RN personnel to protect them during Operation Grapple
Christmas Island .
Please advise:-
1. Was this Anti-flash clothing compatible with and similarly comparable with the Anti- Ionizing radiation gear worn by the people from AWRE?
2. Did the Anti-flash gear have any in-built Ionizing Radiation protection?

Yours faithfully,
Arthur Boyd
