Chapter Summary

By mid-1917 the Board of Admiralty had received a number of worrying reports about unrest amongst the men, as a result of which they launched a number of enquiries to investigate the extent of the problem. The conclusions Their Lordships drew were ambiguous in a number of respects. This chapter examines whether the Board of Admiralty's fears were borne out by the offences being committed against the Naval Discipline Act (NDA) or King's Regulations and Admiralty Instructions. If unrest was as prevalent as the Admiralty believed, one would have expected this to be reflected in offences listed in the book of Courts Martial Returns and in the few remaining transcripts of courts martial proceedings.

Keywords: Board of Admiralty; Naval Discipline Act (NDA)
