GIVING a big thumbs up for the camera, these youngsters enjoyed a behind-the-scenes look at a Royal Navy shore base.
A total of 81 pupils from Gosport’s Grange Infant School visited HMS Sultan to see the Royal Naval Air Engineering and Survival Equipment School. They were treated to a trip round a Sea King helicopter, a look at the aircrew’s clothing, and a paper aeroplane competition.
Petty Officer Sarah Lawford said: ‘The visit has been a great opportunity for us to help the school. Within the hangar we teach young air engineering technicians the basic principles of flight, and the importance of good maintenance and today’s activities have really engaged the children who have all been very excited.’
