I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say how much my Cub Scout group enjoyed the day and staying on HMS Cavalier. We all had a fabulous time and myself and the other leaders haven’t stopped singing your praises to other scout groups.

A big thank you to all the staff at Chatham who made our visit a memorable one. The way we were greeted on arrival was friendly and informative , our 2 tour guides whilst on the ship were fantastic with the kids, they kept there attention , were interesting and made it fun. The security watch man was great and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent, and our guides in the ropery and the walk on tour again were excellent. Keep up the good work it was great to see how everything ran smoothly , quite refreshing in this day and age.
