New officers join the fleet

After five months intensive training, Navy has graduated its newest group of officers from the Royal Australian Naval College, HMAS Creswell.

Commanding Officer Creswell, Captain Charles Huxtable, said the officers had been comprehensively prepared for a career in the Navy, completing the New Entry Officers’ Course at the home of officer training, on the shores of Jervis Bay on the New South Wales south coast.

“This next generation of Navy leaders have demonstrated great motivation and commitment to Australia’s defence,” Captain Huxtable said.
