Specialty Boat Service Elite ‘struggling to train because they don’t have a big enough swimming pool’

One MP claimed the SPECIAL Boat Service force struggled to train because they didn’t have a large enough swimming pool.

The elite commandos needed huge resources to practice their stealth techniques using mini-submarines, said Richard Drax of the Conservatives.

The existing facility in Poole, Dorset, is “not fit for purpose” and frogmen rarely use it, he added.

The unit, the fearsome sister service of the SAS, uses secret mini-submersibles to sneak into hostile territory and wreak havoc on enemy shipping.

“They need a pool of a certain size and depth so they can train in a real environment,” says Drax.

“If we cannot provide our Task Force with the most basic facilities, then I cannot think of a higher priority, other than accommodation.”

Commandos regularly train in Poole Harbor and the Canal, around Mr. Drax’s constituency.

But he said the weather limited when they could train at sea – and called on the Government to “pour a lot of money in”.

Defense Procurement Secretary Jeremy Quin said Strategic Command – the body that leads the UK’s Special Forces – would prioritize its budget.

“If they don’t get it, it’s just because there are items more important than our Special Forces,” he said.
