A SERVICE CALENDAR: MARCH 31ST.
On the last day of March, 1921, the Admiralty Experimental Station at Shandon, Dumbartonshire, was closed down. It had been established during the war for various experiments, but principally those connected with anti-submarine work, and it had answered its purposes excellently. Since the Armistice it had been tackling it’s work with the added information obtained from surrendered German submarines, under Captain G L Massey, formerly Assistant Director of Paravanes.
