HMS Express And WURNU Students In The Bristol Channel

As our Senior Midshipman writes:

‘On Tuesday 29th October, one Midshipman, one Officer Cadet and one Acting Officer Cadet from Wales URNU had the opportunity to take the Unit’s affiliated warship HMS EXPRESS out for a day trip in the Bristol Channel.

The trip was conducted to allow the ashes of a former Royal Navy sailor to be committed to the waves, and gave the students a chance to try out their navigation skills on the Royal Navy’s Warship Electronic Charting and Data Information System (WECDIS).

Despite the bitter winds and rough seas, the trip was a success, and allowed the students to put into practise the skills learnt in the classroom – a unique opportunity only for URNU Officer Cadets.’
