    Background: For eighty boys from Aberdeen and the North-east there was a school exercise with a difference today.

    They went to sea on board the Royal Navy anti-aircraft frigate the PUMA. The exercise was part of a "Meet the Navy" tour of Britain being undertaken by the Frigate, which will also visit the Moray Firth and Greenock. The ship made two trips from Aberdeen during the day, the first with boys from schools throughout Banffshire. They spent five hours at sea getting first-hand experience of various aspects of shipboard operations. But for most of them the highlight was a mock attack on a submarine.
