Supporting those in the Armed Forces community is at the core of Audax culture, and it is great to see our team playing their part. Mike Pitt, an Audax Company Director and Veteran Submariner is a Volunteer Guide for H.M.S. Courageous.

The Courageous Volunteer Guides (CVGs), who are a group of former Royal Navy personnel, provide visitors with an in-depth tour of Courageous and the Submarine Service. As the name suggests, they are all volunteers and receive absolutely no payment for the work they do.

These volunteers give up their time to provide tours to Officer Cadets & Officer Training Courses, Submarine Advisory Group, RN trainees from different areas, not least from the Submarine Training School in HMS Raleigh. Other visitors to the site include: Officer Cadets, Officer Training Courses, Submarine Advisory Group, Cadets / Sea Scouts and others from Industry such as Babcock.

Since 2002, HMS Courageous has been open to visitors as a “Submarine Museum” and provides a fascinating glimpse into the operational world of the ‘Silent Service’. In 2012, Courageous celebrated 10 years’ service as the only nuclear submarine on public display in the United Kingdom and one of only 2 in Europe. It’s so popular that in 2019 they received just under 3,000 visitors.

Audax are proud to support veterans and the armed forces community both within business and the wider community. Our dedication to this cause is further cemented by our commitment to the Armed Forces Covenant and the Employer Recognition Scheme.
