Officer Cadet Ben Fernando, Oxford URNU said: "The day finished with a stunning firework celebration on the River which was a great end to a spectacular civic event."

Lieutenant Will Jones RN, Commanding Officer of the Oxford URNU, said: "The show was a great opportunity for Officer Cadets to ably represent the Unit at such a high profile event.”

Oxford is one of 15 URNUs located across the UK offering opportunities to 750 undergraduates from the country’s leading universities.

The URNU's mission is: "To develop an understanding of the Naval Service in undergraduates, so that those who go into civilian employment are positive advocates thereof and to facilitate a Naval Career for those who choose one."

The URNU is a chance to experience military life without commitment and gain new skills applicable to all walks of life.
