Camborne naval recruit passes out of HMS Raleigh
2:26pm Friday 9th August 2013 in News
A 26-year-old from Camborne was among the successful Royal Navy recruits on parade at HMS Raleigh to mark the successful end of basic training.
Trainee Air Engineering Technician Ryan Morris arrived at the training base at Torpoint in May. During a ten-week course he was given a thorough induction into the Royal Navy, learning skills that he will rely upon throughout his time in the service. The course culminated with the passing-out-parade attended by families and friends.
The former pupil of Camborne Science and Community College decided to join the Royal Navy to pursue an interesting career in his specialist trade of engineering.
He said: “I am very pleased to have achieved my goal of joining the Royal Navy. The course has been the hardest and most enjoyable ten weeks of my life so far.”
Ryan will now transfer to HMS Sultan, Hampshire. There he will learn how to carry out scheduled maintenance as well as pre and post-flight servicing and inspections for the Fleet Air Arm's helicopters.
Recruits on the Royal Navy's Initial Naval Training course are taught the basics of naval discipline and customs. They learn about navigation and are given the chance to take the helm of their own medium sized inflatable boat during a waterborne orienteering exercise.
