This year’s Devonport Navy Days has been a hailed a success after thousands of visitors poured through the Navy Base gates over the weekend.
Commodore Ian Jess said: “Navy Days was hugely successful this year. It is an important event in the Navy calendar as it gives the public the chance to see beyond the walls of the dockyard and it helps to dispel the mystic.
“We are very grateful to all those who took part and those who supported and helped organise this unique event, as well as all the thousands of visitors from across the country who made this an occasion to remember.”
The weather over the two days stayed mainly sunny and dry for the event which enabled the visitors to fully appreciate all the attractions on offer, these included t he Royal Navy’s newest warship HMS Daring, the submarine HMS Trafalgar, the Black Cats Lynx helicopter display pair and an exhibition dedicated to the Royal Marines and their equipment.
