Take this opportunity to join a unique group of skilled Auxiliarists who verify the Private Aids and survey the Bridges of First Northern.

 Current and qualified Aid Verifiers are also invited to upgrade their navigation skills and experiences narrated by highly skilled AVs.

Coxswains and Boat Crew qualified Auxiliarists are especially requested to become Aid Verifier qualified since the PATON and Bridge programs are a perfect match for Operational activities.

Please pass this information to your Flotilla and Division members.

Contact Frank Larkin, DSO-NS 013 if you have any questions about these programs.
