15 Sea Cadets from across the region were specially selected to form an Honour Guard for the Admiral of the Sea Cadet Corps, His Royal Highness The Duke of York, during a special Word War Two commemoration in York recently.
Amongst them were 2 cadets from TS Cleopatra - LC Abi Langford and AC Rosie Lischke. They lined the steps of York Minster as part of the annual Kohima Commemoration, which marks a decisive battle in World War Two over the Japanese. They formed part of a line of honour for their Admiral, who welcomed their role in the ceremony, and formed an Honour Guard for the veterans of the Kohima Battle at the Chapter House and the Kohima Memorial. It was the first time in the Sea Cadets history that they been known to form a part of the Kohima Commemoration Service.
