Young People Tour

Pathfinders visit the helicopter pad.

Four uniformed youth groups went aboard the HMS Iron Duke during its visit last week.

On its Grand Cayman stop, members of the Scouts, Girls' Brigade, Cadet Corps and Pathfinders, and their respective group leaders, were treated to an in-depth tour of one of the most advanced ships in the Royal Navy.

They covered the ship from bridge to kitchen, gaining knowledge of its armaments, design and capabilities.

The HMS Iron Duke's primary roles in the region are providing reassurance and support in emergencies such as hurricanes, and combating narcotics trafficking.

Last year the vessel, with Prince William aboard, collaborated with the US Coast Guard to seize almost a ton of cocaine.
