Stornoway was a naval base and sub-command activated during World War One and World War Two. The Department of Admiralty subdivided its operational responsibilities into a number of geographically defined stations. The Royal Navy was organised into a series of formations or naval establishments each assigned to that geographic area. Appointed to each station was a naval officer. The command was first established from 1915 to 1920 and again from 1940 to 1943.
Stornoway, Scotland is situated in the Outer Hebrides, northwest of the mainland of Scotland.
