Our unit name

Our unit name is TS Ulster which is named after the Royal Navy warship, HMS Ulster. HMS Ulster (R83) was a U-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy that saw service during World War II. She was later converted into a Type 15 fast anti-submarine frigate, with the new pennant number F83. HMS Ulster would be the third vessel in Royal Navy history to have that name.

With funds gathered through a Naval Savings Campaign in 1942 known as Warship Week, the ship was adopted by the civil community of Ulster's County Down.

Who are Sea Cadets Lisburn?

Lisburn Sea Cadets is a part of one of the United Kingdom's largest youth organisations with over 400 units and 14,000 cadets within the corps. Established in 1856 the Sea Cadets was created by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme. Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded the unit building. The tradition of community-based Sea Cadet units continues today with 400 across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet their running costs. All units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets. We work in partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping companies and the Maritime sector. We aim to inspire young people to reach their potential by developing valuable, personal attributes like team working, independence and communication skills through nautical based adventure.
