Andrew said:“Bradley really enjoyed his time in the chair.“It’s a job I’ve done many times before, so for me it was really fun to be able to show him one of the things his Dad does for a living.“He has already said he wants to join the Navy too!”Lt Matt Bray RN, who organised the day’s activities, said:“The Ship’s Company rely so heavily on the support of their families and friends throughout the year, whether we’re in UK waters or deployed on operations around the world protecting the nation’s interests.“Days like today are a fantastic opportunity to repay our loved ones by treating them to an exciting day at sea, and give them a little taste of what it is we get up to when we’re away from home.”[mappress]Press Release, June 24, 2013; Image: Royal Navy View post tag: HMS View post tag: Family View post tag: gives View post tag: Defence View post tag: Defender View post tag: Navy View post tag: Taste Back to overview,Home naval-today HMS Defender Gives a Taste of Life at Sea to Crew’s Family and Friends View post tag: crewlast_img
