HMS Explorer is a P2000 Fast Inshore Patrol Vessel based in Hull marina for the dedicated sea training of the students that make up the Yorkshire Universities Royal Naval Unit (YURNU).
Every year The Army Cadet Force (ACF) and Combined Cadet Force cadets from across the country head to Blandford to take part in the Exercise Rolling Thunder signals competition. This year, cadets and adult instructors from C Company made a real impression:
Saturday 16th May 2015 saw a Cleethorpes born and bred Royal Marine, now a reservist at Leeds Detachment, showcase his Units weapons in support of his parading brethren.
Every year, adult instructors from across the country, weigh up the difficult decision; whether to remain as adult non-commissioned officers, or whether to take the leap and go for a commission.
