Social Education in the Services


AMONG the three thousand lecturers to the Forces included in the panels of our twenty–three regional committees there are many who offer one aspect or another of science as their subject. The choice of lecturer and topic is, under the agreement made by the Central Advisory Council for Adult Education in H.M. Forces with the Services, dependent upon the expressed wishes of the men and women themselves. It is the function of the Service education officers to ascertain what these interests are. A considerable number of lectures on scientific subjects and classes in either pure or applied science have been provided. The resources of the universities, local education authorities and voluntary bodies have been placed fully at the disposal of the Services for this purpose.
