§ Lord CHARLES BERESFORD
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty the names of the battleships, battle cruisers, cruisers, and destroyers of the Fleets and squadrons in Home waters; and which of these ships are manned by full, nucleus, and reduced nucleus crews?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
The fully-manned ships and destroyers will be found on pages 269 and 269 (a) of the current Navy List. Those with nucleus crews will be found on pages 269 (b,) 269 (d,) and 270 (b), omitting those ships which are noted as being in the Third Fleet for administrative purposes, and also any destroyers in excess of twenty in each of the patrol flotillas. Those with reduced nucleus crews are the omissions above-mentioned 2279W and the ships shown on page 269 (c.) In the case of certain individual ships, the notations at the foot of the page should be studied.
