RNLI Salcombe volunteer Crew member becomes Able Seaman Nathan Dundas RN.

After ten weeks of basic training at HMS Raleigh, Salcombe volunteer crew member Nathan Dundas was passed out as an Able Seaman in the Royal Navy on Friday 1st February 2019.

Joining the Lifeboat crew at seventeen Nathan became the second member of the family to be a part of the Salcombe crew, joining his Father Iain. Indeed, both had been on several ‘shouts’ together, one in particular where they were involved in the successful treatment and evacuation of a heart attack casualty.

Joining the Royal Navy had been a long-held ambition for Nathan and when the chance presented itself, as he was about to turn eighteen, there was no stopping him.

Although now a full-time member of the Royal Navy, Nathan has asked that he keep his position on the Lifeboat for as long as he can.
