Charles saluted the new generation of officers at Britannia Royal Naval College.

ザ・ Prince of Wales was the guest of honour at the passing out parade at Britannia Royal Naval College.

チャールズ who passed out from the very same college 50 数年前, saluted the new generation of officers at the home of イギリス海軍 Officer training in Dartmouth, デボン 木曜日に.

Among those passing out in front of the heir to the throne after completing 30 weeks of training were Officer Cadets Alistair Poat, から サマセット and Ruairidh McBean, from Inverness.

OC Poat, who will be starting his flying training in the new year as an observer (navigator/weapons and sensor specialist) in the Fleet Air Arm, said his training had pushed him out of his “comfort zone”.

彼が追加した: “Coming from an engineering background I hadn’t had much experience of leadership responsibility. Training has given me a great chance to learn and hopefully set me up for a successful career in the Royal Navy.

“By far the most enjoyable part of training for me was our initial sea time. The early opportunity to get hands on and see what life was actually like in the fleet was amazing. It reaffirmed my reasons for joining, as it’s a completely different environment from Dartmouth.”

OC McBean said it was a “great honour” to have Charles in attendance at the passing out parade.

彼が追加した: “Those passing out should be immensely proud of their achievements to earn their place on the parade ground.

“Due to the ongoing pandemic, the support from families and friends has proved to be more important than ever, and I would like to thank them all for their incredible support to their loved ones whilst undergoing training.

"その間 2021 has been a difficult year for everyone, I’m incredibly proud of the way that my staff have adapted and embraced new ideas, to protect the in-flow of new blood into the service.”
