Virtual Everest Challenge - Oliver

Virtual Everest Challenge - Oliver

Check out cadet Oliver from Burton Sea Cadets who has climbed 4163m (half way!) in the virtual Everest challenge so far.

"Hi, I’m Oliver from Burton Sea Cadets. I joined this challenge as I was looking for something to do during lockdown to keep active and thought this is a great way to raise money for the unit and Sea Cadets. I love climbing and one day I hope to climb Mount Everest itself.” 

We have no doubt one day Oliver's Everest ambitions will become reality one day with how well he's taken on the challenge so far! 

You can still join team Sea Cadets and start the Everest challenge. You’ll have 3 months from signing up to reach the peak. Sign up at: https://www.sea-cadets.org/get-started/everest

Oliver has raised £180 so far, support his journey to the summit on JustGiving here: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lindsay-flint

Sea Cadets Remembrance Day

Sea Cadets Remembrance Day

Armistice Day commemorates the official end of World War One and all those who have and continue to sacrifice for their country.

Sea Cadets are honoured to salute and join in national services, be that remotely this year.

Cadet Callum from Kent had the honour of being the Bugler on the Cenotaph this Sunday.

Join us at 11am for a 2 minutes silence. We will remember them.

Thank you to everyone who remembered at home in their own way, saluting on their doorsteps or their living room.

Here are some of many of the Cadet salutes across the UK:

Orpington Sea Cadets:

Ruislip Sea Cadets:

Staines and Egham Sea Cadets:

Trafalgar Day 2020

Trafalgar Day 2020

We’re honoured to commemorate Trafalgar Day this year despite current restrictions. Captain Philip Russell RN, First Sea Lord Cadet Sergeant Laurelle (Waltham Forest SC) Leading Cadet Shaun (Greenwhich, Deptford and Rotherthithe SC) and Leading Cadet Callum (Folkestone SC) attended Trafalgar Square in a ceremony scaled back from the usual for the laying of the wreaths and salute to Admiral Lord Nelson.

Trafalgar Day is an important event in the Sea Cadet calendar to come together socially and demonstrate our values. Although we could not meet physically this year, cadets across the UK joined in national virtual salute.

Winner of the 11-18 category in the Submariner Memorial competition was Cadet Zoe from Gosforth Sea Cadets.

Zoe impressed the judges with her blue glass design that visitors can walk under to view sculptured art. Zoe, along with the other winners, are invited to attend the opening of the memorial in 2022 by Prince William, Commodore-in-Chief Submarines. 

The Submariner Memorial Appeal is a registered charity set up to create a fitting memorial to submariners who have lost their lives in the Service and to the sacrifice of their families.

Former Cadets accepted to RM Band Service

The Royal Marines Band Service is regarded as one of the world’s most versatile military musical organisations, providing the Naval Service, Defence and the UK with musical and ceremonial excellence that underpins the fabric of the nation, Service ethos and national core values.

We’re very proud that 7 former Sea Cadets have been accepted into this prestigious service this year.

Best of luck to them as they embark on their exciting career ahead, which could see them perform in ceremonies all over the globe.
