JUNIORS proved they have got what it takes as they took on the field gun competition at HMS Collingwood.

The competition is similar to the Royal Navy field gun competition, which took place last Saturday, but this competition is for juniors aged 18-25, who have either recently joined the Armed Forces, have begun apprenticeships with commercial organisations, or who are studying at colleges.
