Annually every Area (6 in total) have an Area Conference in November. During the annual conferences, it is an opportunity to celebrate the awards for the Area and the National nomination for awards.
At the South West Area Conference, Milford Haven had a very good run with awards, claiming the first ever awards for all 3:
- Runner Up – Stephenson Trophy. This award is to the best Unit in the South West Area and goes onto the National Award for the Best Unit in the UK. This places Milford Haven in the top 2 Units in the Area and top 12 Units in the UK!
- SRMO Trophy Nomination. This award is to the most improved Royal Marines Cadet Detachment goes onto the National Awards.
- Roddie Casement Sword Nomination. This award went to Lieutenant (SCC) William Elliott RNR, who in the opinion of the Area Officer is the Best Commanding Officer in South West Area. His nomination puts him up against 5 other nominations for the National Award.
Lieutenant (SCC) William Elliott RNR, the Commanding Officer comments, “I am rightfully extremely proud of the Unit and Royal Marines Cadet Detachment. We have worked extremely hard over the years and to have it recognised for the determination and improvement here at TS Harrier is just amazing. For my nomination, I am very honoured but it wouldn’t have been possible without the support of my amazing team of adult volunteers, committee members and parent’s committee, in addition to simply the best group of cadets. Fingers crossed for the national awards, due to be released in the next 2 weeks”.
