Petty Officer (PO) Alan Bates was on hand to demonstrate the procedure for loading the 37 kilogramme rounds into the gun – an operation that needs to be completed every five seconds to keep the gun firing at its optimum rate.

DTUS students will join the Royal Navy at the conclusion of their university studies and visits such as these are designed to give them a flavour of what the Royal Navy can offer them, together with what it expects from them.

Officer Cadet Joseph Dendle spoke of his impressions after viewing the Navy’s guns, saying, “This visit has definitely made me keen to ultimately join the Royal Navy. Everyone here has been very open, friendly and knowledgeable.”
