The squadron was responsible for the advanced training of officers in anti-submarine warfare and for the evaluation of modern anti-submarine equipment. Although operational from Derry, the ships assigned to the squadron continued to carry out their refits and intermediate dockings at their base ports (HMNB Devonport, Portsmouth and Rosyth).
