1. The sum of the units will not match the total strength of the University Royal Naval Units as published in Table 8b of the Service Personnel Statistics (SPS), 1 October 2018. Figures in the SPS also include Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme personnel, however they are not included in the above table as they have separate units.

2. Figures are not available prior to 1 April 2013.

3. N/A occurs as the Devon Unit was launched in 2017.

4. Figures have been rounded to the nearest 10, figures ending in '5' are rounded to the nearest 20 to avoid bias.
