OFFICERS COMMISSIONED INTO THE RCN THROUGH THE RN UPPER YARDMAN’S SCHOOL

by John M. MacFarlane

For 100 years the Royal Navy has used the Upper Yardman's Scheme to commission older more experienced personnel from the lower deck. For a brief period the Royal Canadian Navy used this scheme to commission a small number of officers. The program was replaced by HMCS Venture and other commissioning schemes which produced larger numbers of officers needed by the navy. This is the definitive list of the graduates of this program.
