Llanelli Sea Cadets has been around since 1942. The unit is run by our Commanding Officer, Cheif Petty Officer (SCC) Lucy Killick. There is a team of adult volunteers who help run the unit by training cadets, supervising, and also by keeping us afloat by raising funds. The units is managed by a committee called the Unit Management Committee. This committee is lead by the Chairperson Mrs Susan Killick.

Affiliated Ship

Some Sea Cadet Units in the UK are fortunate enough to have affiliations with current serving Royal Navy, Royal Fleet Auxiliary or Merchant Navy Ships.

Llanelli Sea Cadets was formed during Warship week in 1942. The town and people of Llanelli helped raise over £400,000 in order to pay for a ship. This ship was HMS Echo. Following this the Llanelli Sea Cadets was formed as Training Ship, or T.S. Echo.

Since then we have relied on public donations to keep us running. We work hard to support the community not only by training youth and keeping them off the streets twice a week but also by attending charity events, partaking in parades and ceremonies and various other activities.

 Who runs it?

The staff at T.S.ECHO are all volunteers who give their time up to run the cadet

unit. There are a number of volunteers at the unit, listed below.

All of our staff are trained in child protection and are CRB cleared.

We are always looking for more staff
