asked the Secretary of State for Air what is the method of recruitment for the Air, Sea Rescue Service?

Personnel for marine craft duties in the Air/Sea Rescue Service are obtained from volunteers already serving in the Royal Air Force and from civil life. Officers and men for flying and other duties in the service are not recruited specially but are subject to the normal posting arrangements for the Royal Air Force generally.

Are there any restrictions on men who are serving in other branches being accepted as volunteers for this service?
