Naval personnel are gaining more experience at RAF Marham.
The Royal Navy’s hydrographic, metrological and oceanographic branch is working with the base’s Met Office staff.
The UK Met Office has two positions at Marham and the team is looking to develop new requirements.
Chief Petty Officer Warrick Eyre said, “We are all enjoying life at the Norfolk base, as many of us haven’t had the opportunity to serve in this part of the country before, so there are lots of new and interesting places to explore in Norfolk.” A number of cadets from London were able to meet their flying squad namesakes which are based at Marham.
Youngsters from 31 (Tower Hamlets) and 9 Squadron (Islington) visited the base during a visit to RAF Wittering, near Stamford.
The cadets were given a tour of the station’s new aviation heritage centre and tested their knowledge in a quiz, provided by Cpl Ashley Keates, a volunteer with the museum. Cadets were introduced to members of the Tornado squadrons and shown around the aircraft they fly.
