Thousands take a peek behind the scenes at world-famous Royal Collage
More than 5,000 people took the chance to look behind the scenes at Dartmouth’s Britannia Royal Navy College when the gates were thrown open for the world-famous college’s annual Open Day.
Visitors from near and far were treated to a full day of demonstrations and displays at the world-renowned College designed to show them the role BRNC plays in training Royal Navy personnel today and over the last 154 years. Highlights included tours of the College and access to the simulators used for navigation training.
Members of the public were also able to climb on board the Hindostan, a decommissioned minesweeper permanently moored on the River Dart, and take trips on the river in some of the small boats driven by the Officer Cadets. A Merlin helicopter conducted a fly-past and the Band of Her Majesty’s Royal Marines Plymouth was also on hand to entertain the visitors.
