Met School – Devonport

Met School - Devonport

By the time the latest school was established in Devonport Dockyard most of our members had long left the service, and, it is true to say that nobody has served at all four schools. Some, at a push, may have served at three but two would be more likely.

As an Association we maintain strong links with the newest Met School and try to support those serving today in some small way. We have presented the School with the Cloud Observers Trophy; awarded on a annual or near annual basis to the top student of the year retrospectively.

Recommended by the School, in 2007 the Cloud Observers trophy was awarded to AB(HM) Grace Jones. She received the award from Commodore Charles Stevenson, NROSNI, in the library at the School, witnessed by Gill Charles and John Williams along with others on courses at the time.
