Naval reserve statistics are published quarterly in the Quarterly Personnel Report. The provisional figures available for the number of Maritime Reserve recruits that left the service and were enlisted can be found at:

(tables 9 and 13)

Due to the lack of validated and corrected data prior to October 2012, it is not possible to calculate movements before October 2012 using consistent definitions.

Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10. Numbers ending in '5' have been rounded to the nearest multiple of 20 to prevent systematic bias.

Defence Statistics is continuing to investigate issues and methodologies relating to these statistics arid this work may result in changes to the data.
