Members of the Royal Navy's presentation team were guest speakers at the latest Rotary Club of Lowestoft East Point meeting.
Lieutenant Kelly Jenkins-Hill, Royal Marine Lance Corporal Matthew McGrath and Leading Hand Peter Smith travelled from Portsmouth in wintry conditions to speak to East Point club members, the Rotary District Governor Robert Lovick, visiting Rotarians, guests and partners at the Hotel Victoria last Tuesday, February 6.
The presentation team gave details of the various aspects of the Navy today, which embraced military, humanitarian and diplomatic issues. The presentation included several short videos which highlighted the various aspects and the people who serve.
A club spokesman said: “It was fascinating to learn that there are as many personnel working in Specsavers as there are serving in the Navy. The team shared information on the new aircraft carriers and the jet fighters which will be based on them, the various types of ships which will feature in the near future together with the various types of submarine which all form an integral part of today's Navy.”
The presentation lasted for 40 minutes after which the team responded to questions on a wide range of topics.
Club president, Paul Tabiner said: “The quality of the presentation was exceptional and the three young members of the team were outstanding ambassadors for the Navy.
“All too often we hear and read negative things about our Navy, Army and Air Force but listening to the passion and dedication that this team have for what they do made us proud of our Navy and the outstanding service it provides for our country.”
At the end of their presentation the presentation team received a standing ovation from those present.
