Cadets Travel With Ease!

Cadets Travel With Ease!

We are now the proud owner's of a 17 seater minibus (LDV Convoy 400), albeit a second hand bus but an essential asset for the Unit.  It will allow us to take part in activities, competitions or events without the worry of hiring transporting cadets "in bulk".
 

Milford Haven Port Authority Support Sea Cadets!

Milford Haven Port Authority Support Sea Cadets!

Milford Haven Port Authority supported our funding application in purchasing a new trailer (useful for our sailing dinghys and small power boats) and a tow hitch installation on a car.  With this funding, it helps us safeguard the future of our waterborne activities and the safety of crafts and volunteers whilst towing.

A BIG thank you to Milford Haven Port Authority for the support!

Area Drill & Piping Competition 2012

Area Drill & Piping Competition 2012

This weekend saw a lot of effort from the cadets in preparing for the South West Area Drill & Piping Competition today (17th Mar).
 
The cadets left Milford Haven at 3pm on Friday afternoon in order to get on the coach that was leaving for HMS Raleigh, the Royal Navy's New Entry Training Base in Plymouth.  The Competition was held on the Saturday against eight other Districts and Milford Haven did themselves unbeliveably proud!
 
Although we didn't take any silverware home, we most certainly tried our best and improved on last year and every cadets should be proud of themselves !
 
GO TEAM MILFORD HAVEN!

Hulonce RNR).

We also had the pleasure of the Area Recreation Officer, Lieutenant Commander (SCC) Jay Beddow RNR attending the inspection, and he inspected the Junior Sea Cadets. 

During the evening the Cadets demonstrated culinary treat skills from the Junior Section, communication and navigation skills from the Sea Cadets and Duties of a Sentry from the Royal Marines Cadets.
