History

The Universities Royal Naval Unit in Glasgow was formed in September 1971. It was for the benefit of male undergraduates.

The principal aim of the unit was to foster interest in nautical affairs in general, and in the Royal Navy in particular. To achieve this, instruction was given in all naval subjects, although emphasis was given to navigation and seamanship. The intention was to give members of the unit sufficient training for them to pass the Sub-lieutenant, Royal Naval Reserve examinations in the second year and the Board of Trade Yachtmasters Coastal Certificate examinations in the third year.
