Royal Navy Recognition

RN Recongnition Badge

Hythe Sea Scouts is one of only 101 Sea Scout Groups within the country which is recognised by the Royal Navy. To ensure that the group is at this high standard, follow-up inspections are conducted every 18 months by a serving Royal Navy Officer.


As part of the program, we are able to do the following activities because of the recognition by the Royal Navy:

  • All member of the group (including Leaders, Explorers, Scouts and Cubs) wear the Royal Navy Recognition Badge
  • The use of HMS Bristol and the Royal Navy Sailing Centre (RNSC) - which we go to at least twice a year
  • The Big 4 Events - including the Sea Scout Summer Camp, Football Competition, Swimming Competition and the Explorer Winter Camp
