  • Do not use language that is offensive.
  • Ensure comments are legal and do no break UK law which includes libel, condoning illegal activity, racism and contempt of court.
  • Do not use the site to promote a single political party (although political discussion, relevant to the navy is welcome).

  • Do not impersonate another person or an organisation.
  • Do not promote any product, service, organisation or publication without permission.
  • Do not use more than one username per person to post comments or supply false email addresses. (We do not maintain a database of email addresses and will never share them with a third party. They are only used very occasionally by us to directly contact a commenter)

In her new role as the Commodore-in-Chief of the Fleet Air Arm, Her Royal Highness the Princess of Wales visited #RNASYeovilton yesterday. She met sailors and viewed a Merlin and Wildcat helicopter, conducted training exercises with the Navy Survival Equipment technicians, and spent time in the Air Traffic Control tower, where she met staff and spoke with an airborne Wildcat crew. Yeovilton is where King Charles learnt how to fly helicopters nearly 5 decades ago. #FleetAirArm #RoyalVisit #RoyalNavy #HRHThePrincessofWales
