By 1964 the MCS had grown to 40 detachments and by 1984 there were 61.
Today there are 117 detachments in Sea Cadet units across the UK.
In 2010 the MCS was honoured to be renamed Royal Marines Cadets, following agreement by HM the Queen to the use of “Royal” in the title. An official rebadging ceremony took place at CTCRM Lympstone on 25 September 2011.
Alpha and Zulu companies provided a 48 man guard and two colours for the National Trafalgar Day Parade on Trafalgar Square on October 24 2011, the first time in the Royal Marines Cadets History.
