      I am researching the activities of HMS Guardian in WW2. Guardian and her sister ship Protector were specifically designed for the role of laying anti-submarine nets around fleet anchorages. Guardian also had some role with photographic work. I have discovered our Oxfordshire village adopted the ship during Warship Week in 1942.
      I am particularly interested in the seamanship aspects of netlaying. A not very glamourous job but often a tough one requiring specialised seamanship skills. Would these have been taught at torpedo or minesweeping schools?
