About this memory

Isobel Shaw (left) and Rosemary MacMillan (right).

Rosemary volunteered with the RNXS at HMS Claverhouse in Granton Square from 1985 to 1994. The RNXS was disbanded in 1994 due largely to the ending of the Cold War.

In the event of a crisis, the onshore volunteers of the RNXS were to take over the running of the mainland control centres, in Rosemary’s case this being the defences at Granton and in the Forth.
