The annual Investiture Day onboard HMS Victory was presided over by First Sea Lord, Admiral Sir Ben Key, for a new cohort of First Sea Lord Cadets on Friday 17 February for 2023!
Each 'Sea Cadets area' (of which there are six in the UK) is represented by a distinguished cadet selected for their ability to act as ambassadors for Sea Cadets at official ceremonies and functions. BZ to our 2023 First Sea Lord Cadets listed below, and to the volunteers and staff who have helped them on the path to this achievement.
Eastern Area Sea Cadets - Leading Cadet Joshua
London Area Sea Cadets - Petty Officer Cadet Erin
Sea Cadets Northern Area - Petty Officer Cadet Wesley
Sea Cadets North West Area - Petty Officer Cadet Callum
Southern Area Sea Cadets - Petty Officer Cadet Joseph
South West Area Sea Cadets - Leading Cadet Maisie
BZ and thank you to our 2022 First Sea Lord Cadets who served with such distinction throughout last year, and who stepped down with the following message: “We’ve had an interesting year and we’re so grateful and honoured to have had these experiences. These events wouldn’t have been possible without people behind the scenes and the incredible support we’ve had from staff, volunteers and our parents. Thank you for everything and we wish the 2023 First Sea Lord Cadets the best of luck and we hope they too enjoy their time as much as we have."
