Sea Cadets from TS Achilles were lucky to be given the opportunity to go aboard the NZ Navy Ship HMNZS Canterbury. We were given a tour around the Ship and got to see interesting parts of the Ship including the Bridge and the Landing Craft that they use to take vehicles from the Ship to dry land. This was a great opportunity and we would like to say a special thank you to Ordinary Combat Systems Specialist Howie for showing us around and giving us a great tour.
