The Officers, POs and cadets of the Pershore sea cadet unit were out in force on the Saturday before Remembrance Sunday to collect for the Pershore and District Branch of the Royal British Legion poppy appeal.

The Officers, POs and cadets from TS Scimitar have made this an annual event which they support no matter what the weather may throw at them.

This year on a very wet day the cadets braved the weather to man their positions in the town throughout the day raising the sum of £245.41 for the legion.

The following day the unit reassembled to march with the Royal British Legion and other cadet organisation to Pershore Abbey for the formal remembrance  service.  A very good turn out from the Officers, POs and cadets on the day.


At the end of the parade the TS Scimitar unit together with the unit President and the Padre.

Each year the cadets from all three services gather at Pershore cemetery  with the Pershore and District branch of the Royal British Legion to remember those who have fallen in the world wars














The historic service was started in 1945 by the late Coun John Smith together with the Pershore Youth Fellowship when they went carol singing to raise funds to make a wreath for every military grave in the cemetery.  Today those present will lat poppy crosses.

There are 72 military graves in Pershore cemetery with 64 of the burials during the second world war, of which 41 were Canadian nationals.  Most of those laid to rest came from nearby RAF Pershore or RAF Defford and died either in place crashes or training accidents in the area.

T. S. Scimitar Cadet of the Year 2014

The Anchor Trophy

At this year’s Pershore District Royal British Legion annual Dinner, held on Saturday 21st February at the Barkley Arms, awards were presented by Colonel Stamford Cartwright OBE TD to the Cadets of the Year from Pershore’s Sea Cadet Corps, Army Cadet Force, Air Training Corps & St John’s Ambulance Brigade. This year’s award of Pershore Sea Cadet of the Year was awarded to Cadet Charlotte Drinkwater.

During the presentations our Commanding Officer readout Charlotte’s citation & Colonel Stamford Cartwright presented her with the Anchor Trophy, her citation read as follows:

This year’s award was a very close choice between three cadets, all obtaining a very high standing in the Corps core values and representing the Unit at local, District & Area levels.

However this year’s winner has shown that little bit more, although only being a cadet for a short period of time, she has been a great asset to the Unit, staff & her fellow cadets

Among her achievements this year, she gained the highest medal haul at an Area swimming competition held at HMS Raleigh, when she qualified for the first time and having only just learnt to wind surf qualified for the Area Wind surfing regatta finals’ plus she has gained numerous other qualifications on the water.  Charlotte has worked hard throughout the year & gained advancement along the rating scale.


I give me great pleasure in announcing the 2014 winner of The Anchor Trophy goes to:

Cadet Charlotte


Commanding Officer T.S. Scimitar

Lieutenant (SCC) Stephen Thomas RNR
