Royal Navy reservists taste life at sea
The Pride of Bristol training vessel has given young Royal Naval Reserve (RNR) ratings experience of life at sea in the Bristol Channel.
Seven trainees from Royal Naval Reserve unit HMS Flying Fox spent a busy weekend on exercise on board the Pride of Bristol in the Bristol Channel practising basic seamanship skills required by the Royal Navy.
The exercise was a typical weekend that the recruits volunteered for as part of their parallel lives in the RNR. A combination of young professionals and recent school leavers have joined HMS Flying Fox and are now taking on board the challenge of demanding seagoing training.
