THIS September, Navy Days is coming back to Plymouth.

Her Majesty's Naval Base Devonport, the largest naval base in Western Europe, will open its doors for the first time in three years for what promises to be a spectacular family day out. Navy Days will showcase the present and future capabilities of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines, and allow the public to meet the men and women who serve on our ships and submarines.

On the water, there will be the unique opportunity to climb aboard a wide range of Royal Naval ships and submarines, including a Hunter-Killer nuclear submarine and the Falklands war veteran HMS Courageous. Also open to the public will be the helicopter carrier HMS Ocean, the largest ship in the fleet, and HMS Bulwark, star of the latest Warship TV series. The highlight of the show will be the newest and most sophisticated warship in the Royal Navy, HMS Daring, the first of the Type-45 destroyers.

On the land, witness a 'Back from the Frontline' Exhibition by the Royal Marines. A wide range of vehicles and weapons will be on display, including Jackal, Viking, the awesome LCAC military hovercraft, and the grenade machine gun. The Band of Her Majesty's Royal Marines will also be in attendance along with the Royal Navy's parachute display team and the Royal Artillery's motorbike display team, the Flying Gunners.

With so many attractions, this really is the ideal family day out. Why not come and Meet Your Navy? Advanced tickets are available with substantial discounts from the ticket hotline 08445 787878. For more information visit: www.royalnavy.mod.uk/navydays.
