Welcome to Crawley Sea & Royal Marines Cadets!
We are one of many Sea Cadet Units located throughout the United Kingdom; It is a disciplined youth organisation based upon the customs and traditions of the Royal Navy and Royal Marines and is a registered charity. We're a unit with excellent facilities and a Ship's Company that likes to get out and do things, If you want to learn more about us then come down and see us on a parade night.
Crawley Unit has played a key part in developing the areas youth for nearly 50 years and although it is based upon the Royal Navy and Royal Marines we are not funded by them but rely on donations and fundraising by the adult volunteers.
We currently have in the region of 60 cadets enrolled but we're always looking for new cadets and just as importantly adult's to support the management of the unit.
