§ Mr. C. Ian Orr-Ewing
Although it is early days, since H.M.S. "Bulwark" has been in commission as a commando carrier for only three months, first reports are promising. Trials show that she can successfully fill her primary rôle and that in an emergency she could transport a second commando of about 600 men. We have also had very good reports on the air-conditioning system and the excellent effect it has on the overall efficiency.
§ Mr. Orr-Ewing
H.M.S. "Albion" has been selected for this and preliminary work has already been authorised.
