HMS Vivid (Plymouth)

HMS Vivid is the Royal Naval Reserve unit associated to Plymouth.


Led by Commander Lauren Johnson RNR, HMS Vivid has been the Plymouth Royal Naval Reserve unit since 1959. Our reservists benefit immensely from belonging to a unit which is based within the largest Naval Base in Western Europe, HM Naval Base Devonport.

This provides excellent training opportunities, giving exposure to the active Naval base on it's doorstep.
