  • Description

    Prince Charles on Wednesday (September 15) followed British Royal tradition and joined the Navy. He's expected to remain in the service for the next three to five years.

    The 22-year-old heir to the British Throne was wearing a naval wing on his sub-lieutenant's uniform when he drove into the college in his open-topped sports car. He recently completed an intensive six-month course in the Royal Air Force. The college's commanding officer, New Zealander, Captain Allan Tait, was among top-ranking officers who greeted Prince Charles. The Prince will be among 300 entrants taking part in a rigorous six-week graduate officers course, starting next Monday (September 20). The Prince is due to join the guided missile destroyer, HMS Norfolk on October 28.
