unit on 15 June.

visit the Navy to see for themselves what life in the
Navy was all about. Although the learners were aged
between 10 and 14 years of age that did not prevent them
from asking many questions on the day to the willing
members at the unit. They proceeded to visit all the
different departments in the unit.

afternoon a truly memorable one.
