HMS Bulwark Visit

On Saturday 23rd July 2011 our Scouts and Explorers were given the opportunity to visit HMS Bulwark, the Royal Navy's newest amphibious assult warship.

We were collected by Royal Marines on their Landing Craft from Torquay Harbour. We then made the journey out to HMS Bulwark in the Bay where she was at Anchor. The Landing Craft entered the doors in the stern of Bulwark and we were aboard this impressive vesel.

Aboard we were given a guided tour of all the different departments and the Marines gave demonstrations of their weapons and military kit.

 Without our Royal Navy Recognition this visit would not have been possible!
