Visit to HMS AMBUSH

On 23 October, Scottish Branch were welcomed onboard the Royal Navy's newest submarine.

RIN Scottish Branch mustered in Faslane on a day of typical West Coat autumn weather, but received a warm welcome for the submarine's Executive Officer and two Navigating Officers. The group was briefed on typical operations of a fleet submarine, and the combination of navigational tools and practices used to support such operations.

The group then toured the submarine with the Navigating Officers as guides, gaining a fascinating insight into the complexity and operation of a modern very high-tech vessel.

Afterwards, the group retired to the nearby Commodore Hotel for a bar meal and ongoing discussions.
