A Libyan Navy delegation visits HMS Raleigh and Britannia Royal Naval College (BRNC) for an insight into Royal Navy recruit training methods

The delegation led by Commodore Hassan Ali Bushnak, Chief of Staff of the Libyan Naval Force, forms part of a wider visit by the Libyan delegation to the Royal Navy in the UK to build relations, offer opportunities, and to help understand the enormous challenges Libya faces in creating a modern naval force.

During their time at HMS Raleigh in Torpoint the visitors were able to see recruits undergoing their 10-week initial naval training course.

The visitors were shown the facilities used to teach recruits how to safely handle and fire the SA80 rifle and first aid training.

They were also invited to see the former minesweeper HMS Brecon, which is now used to give recruits their first taste of life on board ship, and for a diverse range of specialist training from seamanship to catering and hospitality.

Commodore Bushnak is no stranger to BRNC Dartmouth, having trained at the College himself in 1973.

During their time in Dartmouth, the Libyan delegation were able to meet with Officer Cadets and witness a demonstration of maritime leadership training on the River Dart.
