PUPILS at the Latern Primary School in Ely received a visit from the Royal Navy last Wednesday. They arrived in style in a Royal Navy Lynx MK3 helicopter Ice Version from HMS Endurance. The helicopter arrived during the afternoon sessions and stayed for two hours. All the children had a chance to meet Navy personnel, ask questions and inspect the helicopter. Headteacher Jan Cobley, said: "This was a thrilling experience for all the children and we are very grateful that we were chosen. It was particularly exciting for the children to be able to sit in the helicopter cockpit."
