Transcript Volume III * .. s. s... 0 .. 5-.- 0.. * Long Beach, Calif., 19 September, 1936 Number XXXVI HMS APPOLO VI8. ITS SAN PEDRO --::-- The HMS APPOLO, Flagship of Admiral Robert Best, C. B., D. S. O. MVO., commanding the Royal Navy's American and West Indies station ar­rived Thursday morning for a week's visit to San Pedro. At present she is tied up near the Navy Landing, San Pedro, Berth 57. The APPOLO, which was commis­sioned at Devonport dockyard last January, is first of the Royal Navy's new six- inch- gun cruisers to visit the Pacific. Displacing 6980 tons, she carries a main battery of eight six­inch guns, four four- inch anti- craft guns and four three- pounders. She is 550 feet long and carries a comple­ment of 550 oicers and men. Upon her arrival the HOUSTON as flagship of the SOPA rendered appropriate honors for the US Fleet. Official calls were exchanged by Ad­miral Best and Admiral Tarrant and the Wardroom Officers of the two ships. After leaving San Pedro this com­ing Wednesday she will spend a short time at Acapulco, Mexico, proceeding thence to Bermuda, her home port. .. ., WRESTLING HOPES BRIGHT --::-- Under the able tutilege of Lt. ( jg) Young, asisted by Wellbourne and JuuI, our mat artists are rapidly developing. Many new faces are seen on the squad, adding power and balance to the nucleous formed by members of former squads. We feel sure the squad will reap well earned benefits this season. ENLISTMENT8. IN THE NAVAL RESERVE --::-- Since Class F- 2 of the Fleet Naval Reserve has been abolished, the Bu­reau desires to obtain as many en­listments as possible in Class V- 4 of the Naval Reserve. To this end it is desired that com­manding officers insure that each man eligible who has indicated his in­tention not to reenist in the Navy up­on discharge, be informed of his pri­vilege of reenlistment in Class V- 4 of the Naval Reserve, and of the bene­fits and obligations attached thereto, as noted below in paragraphs 5 and 6. To be eligible, a man must be a citizen of the United States, honorably dis­charged from the regular Navy, re­commended for reenlistment, and must enlist in the Naval Reserve within three months from date of discharge from the regular Navy. Enlistments may be effected on board by the commandng officer of a ship or station in a similiar manner to enlistment in the Navy by execution of Form N. Nav. 351, Shipping Arti­cles. On enlistment, service record, Form N. Nav. 352 a supply of which may be obtained from the Bureau, should be prepared and forwarded to the Commandant of the Naval District in which the man's home address is located. Instructions in Articles H- 13­01, 1310, 1313, and 1315 Bureau , f Navigation Manual should be noted in this connection. Information concerning Class V- 4 of the Naval Reserve.
