It is an absolute honour, and pleasure, to be here today to celebrate the culmination of ten very hard weeks of phase one training here at Raleigh

Commodore Rob Bellfield, Commander Devonport Flotilla

The parade marked the successful completion of training for 53 newly qualified Naval ratings, which included 20 Engineering Technicians who had joined the Royal Navy under the Nuclear Undergraduate Apprentice Scheme, destined for careers beneath the waves. 

The scheme offers a fully-funded engineering degree on a tailored career and promotion to Petty Officer within four years.

Cdre Bellfield took command of the Devonport Flotilla in August 2017. He was the Commanding Officer of HMS Raleigh from 2014 to 2016.
