In Which They Served
During World War Two the Royal Navy had to expand more than sevenfold to counter numerous threats across the globe. To find officers for this force it had to move well outside its normal supply of boys trained from the age of 13. As a result yachtsmen were recruited and sent to sea, along with possible officers who served first as ordinary seamen. Selected men were then sent to officer training in Brighton for three months and if they were to serve on convoy escort, to the Western Isles.
