§ 68. Sir CLEMENT KINLOCH-COOKE
asked if he will state the period it takes to make an efficient seaman in the Royal Navy?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
I mentioned four years as a general statement; a seaman of this service would ordinarily have been an able seaman for some months or longer. P 35 It must not be assumed that a man of less service though not fully trained would be inefficient for the duties required of him.
