Change of Command

recently there has been a change of the commanding officer. Lieutenant (SCC) Vicky Milligan RNR who has been in command has stood down in order to study for an MA Higher Education. Whilst leaving the Commanding Officers role she will be staying on at the unit and taking on the key role of Courses and competitions officer, the unit has developed a great deal over the past 3 years and all are very greatful for all that she has done in particular getting cadets away on the offshore flotilla. Lt Milligan has handed command over to Lt Milligan, and its not the first time this pair have done this, back in 2007 after being in command of Camberley unit for 10 years Lt K Milligan handed over to Lt V Milligan.

Lt K Milligan is looking forward to the challenges of commanding a unit again and is no stranger to the unit having commanded it for 10 months before becoming District Officer (Surrey) and being the training officer for the last year.
