Flag Officer Sea Training guest of honour at ceremonial event

27 July 2017
Flag Officer Sea Training, Real Admiral John Clink CBE, paid a special visit to HMS Collingwood recently as the Guest of Honour and Reviewing Officer at the Establishment’s annual Ceremonial Divisions.

In addition to taking the salute, Admiral Clink presented awards and medals to a number of individuals reflecting both academic achievement and exemplary service.

Escorted by Captain Andy Jordan, the Captain of the Maritime Warfare School and HMS Collingwood, the Admiral inspected the Guard of Honour before reviewing HM Royal Marines Band School of Music, who provided the musical accompaniment throughout the event. 

Divisions are a great formal illustration of discipline, commitment, teamwork and loyalty; qualities the Service holds dear and which are fundamental to the Navy’s enduring ethos.
