ROYAL NAVY AFFILIATION
Bridlington Town Council is very pleased to announce that it has created an affiliation between the Defence Maritime Logistics School (DMLS) of the Royal Navy.
The Mayor of Bridlington officially announced the affiliation at the Armed Forces Day on Saturday 30th June.
The Defence Maritime Logistics School (DMLS) is currently located in Cornwall and is to train Naval personnel as Logisticians prepared for the maritime environment in order for them to serve on operations at sea. This covers all Ranks and Rates as well as a broad number of professions such as Chefs, Stewards and Supply Chain specialists. While currently located in Torpoint, Cornwall the School will soon be moving to a new Tri-Service location at Worthy Down, just outside of Winchester.
The affiliation between DMLS and Bridlington also offers historic ties to the original HMS CERES, situated in Wetherby which recruited many people from Bridlington at the time. A formal presentation to DMLS will take place in 2019 and will see the Navy come to Bridlington to officially accept the Freedom Entry of Bridlington.
