HC Deb 03 November 1948 vol 457 c831
2. Commander Noble

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty at what age it is now possible for Sea Cadets to join the R.N.V.R.; and what proportion are guaranteed that they will serve as National Service men in the Royal Navy.

Mr. Dugdale

The minimum age for enrolment in the R.N.V.R. is 17; this limit applies both to Sea Cadets and to other applicants. It is the practice for all such entries to be accepted for National Service in the Royal Navy.
