THE captain and crew of HMS Victory visited a school named after the historic ship to celebrate its one-year anniversary.
Lt Cdr Oscar Whild and his colleagues joined pupils at The Victory Primary in Paulsgrove for the day which included activities relating to Lord Nelson’s flagship.
Children designed model ships to race, were joined by actors who described life on HMS Victory, and were shown unique pieces from the ship like Nelson’s signet ring.
The school was also treated to a fanfare played by the Band of Royal Marines as VIPs such as the city’s Lord Mayor arrived.
Deputy head James Munt said: ‘Victory Day was a great success! We are very fortunate to be forming such strong links with HMS Victory and are very grateful for the resources and time they give to the school.’
