A campaign is getting underway in Birmingham to encourage more people to become Reservists in the Royal Navy in their spare time.
HMS Forward will host a recruitment day on Saturday, aiming to get 220 people to sign up in the next three years.
The event will give people the chance to find out more about life as a Reservist, by taking part in demonstrations and exercises.
New recruits will then be given training for a specific role, ranging from logistics to submarine operations.
The Royal Naval Reserve supplements the full-time ranks with extra trained manpower, and in some cases provides additional specialist civilian skills.
