The Unit played an active part in the London International Shipping week, with cadets and staff attending the service at Westminster Abbey on the 7th, on the following day cadets and our Treasurer, Chloe Andrews-Jones, attended the Reception at Lancaster House with the Princess Royal in attendance.
A group of five cadets did a three day practice Silver Duke of Edinburgh expedition canoeing on the Medway, the following week they completed their qualifying expedition on the Thames.
The month ended sadly, with the funeral of LtCdr Allan Phillips MBE. Alan and his widow Pam devoted a large chunk of their lives to the Sea Cadets, in particular to the City of London Unit. Farewell Allan.
