TANZANIAN AND KENYAN OFFICER SEA RIDERS

HMS Somerset hosts two officers from the Tanzanian Defense Force and the Kenyan Navy. The purpose of the visit was to give the 2 Officers an insight into life onboard a Type 23 Frigate in the Royal Navy. It also gave the RN the perfect opportunity to build on good relations between the UK and our African allies.

The Tanzanian Lt was allocated to the Marine Engineering Department whilst the Kenyan Lt witnessed duties as an Officer of the Watch on the Bridge.
