HC Deb 14 June 1939 vol 348 c1291
35. Lieut.-Colonel Sir Thomas Moore

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty what naval training facilities are available on the west coast of Scotland; and whether, in view of the desire of many young fishermen to receive naval training in place of Militia service, he can state whether any additional facilities are to be provided?

Mr. Shakespeare

Training facilities for the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve are available on the west coast of Scotland in the Clyde Division at Glasgow and His Majesty's Ship „ Carrick „ at Greenock. Young fishermen who express a preference for naval training are being accepted in the Royal Naval Special Reserve and arrangements will be made for their training in that Reserve.
