Queries regarding CF boats and people:

The Trust does not have any full time employees, but in the past we have received so many queries that it has been difficult to keep abreast of them.

The majority of questions may be answered more speedily by searching this web site and by reading a relevant book, either in a library or obtained through one of the avenues suggested. By taking this route the enquirer will obtain a far more comprehensive answer than the Trust can supply.

The definition of Coastal Forces, so far as the CFHT is concerned, includes only those craft that came under the control of Rear-Admiral Coastal Forces in 1940. These were MTB, MASB, MGB, ML and SGB, plus post-1949 FPB.
