Cadets from TS Black Swan recently released a video as part of their presentations to the Inspecting Officer, Commander Tim Porter Royal Navy.

In the video, which lasts just over 3 minutes, the cadets explain why they joined Sea Cadets, what they enjoy most, and what they have accomplish personally from their involvement in the organisation.  There was no script and the cadets were not prompted on what to say to the camera.

The video provides a raw look at why so many young people are involved in Sunbury & Walton Unit, a success which is echoed in towns and cities across the UK.

The video can be viewed by clicking here.
