Royal Marine Cadets

Who we are

Royal Marines Cadets (RMC) are part of the Sea Cadet Corps.

Operating in Detachments based within Sea Cadet units, 117 RMC detachments exist across the UK, Channel Islands, Malta and the Falkland Islands.

To join a Detachment you need to be 13 and can stay on till you reach 18, at which point you can think about whether you might want to be a volunteer. You can then teach what you have learnt to the youngsters coming up through the ranks.

“The training we offer is transferable to your place of work or education. It’s about discipline, about taking with you our ethos and Corps values and applying them to everyday life with courage, determination and humility. And doing it with a sense of humour and a smile or two along the way!”

 

The operational head of the RMC is the Staff Royal Marines Officer (SRMO), who is a serving Colour Sergeant on secondment to the MSSC from the Royal Marines. He is responsible for overseeing the running of the RMC and reporting to the CSC.He is also responsible for conducting the annual SRMO field assessment which all detachments must participate in.

The SRMO is assisted by the Royal Marines Cadets Staff Officer (RMCSO) and Corps Regimental Sergeant Major (Corps RSM), who is the senior WO1 in the corps.
