RN RECRUITING VIDEO
Most of us could adapt a smashing line from the latest Royal Navy recruiting video. Mine would read, “ I was born in Bournemouth but I was made at Halton”.

Dave. You are on to something here. Many brats of the 35th to 37th entries were transferred to the RN in the late 1930s, and the 38th to 42nd Entries included a flight of RN-recruited aircraft apprentices. Their line would have been, “I served in the RN, but I was made at RAF Halton”.That should wind-up our RN friends ET
I attached the video to this post, above, and after watching it and listening to the words spoken …………. it could easily have been an advert for the RAF Halton Apprentice Scheme. We all joined up from different walks of life and were “Made at RAF Halton” although we didn’t know we were being “made” at the time. – Ozzy
