Juniors visit Preston Fire Station

Juniors visit Preston Fire Station

A huge thank you to everyone at Preston Fire & Rescue who showed our Junior Cadets what it means to be part of a fire and rescue team. They all came back high as kites and wanting to become firemen...

As well as looking over the vehicles and equipment, the cadets had a go at finding a hot spot with a thermal camera and spraying the small hose....the big one would have got the better of them! The accompanying staff got a lot from the evening too.

Jubilee Beacon Lighting

The Preston Sea Cadets paraded, along with other organisations, on Preston's flag market to celebrate the lighting of a beacon to mark the Queen's Jubilee. The OiC said, "It was an honour to be invited and we thoroughly enjoyed being part of Preston's Jubilee celebration. The cadets looked really smart, I was really proud of them and the effort they put in."

Celebrating Volunteers' Week

During Volunteers' Week, we shine the spotlight on one of our very own volunteers here at TS Galloway.

During the 2020 pandemic, Sgt. Dowd kept the unit training going and drove the zoom calls. He regularly checked in with cadets to ensure everyone was safe and well.
Sgt. Dowd has an illustrious history with TS Galloway having originally joined in October 1982 and progressing through the ranks from Recruit to Cadet Sgt, later becoming a staff member in 1989.
We celebrate your many years with TS Galloway and here's to many more years yet to come....
Unit Promotion - Cdt 1st Eleanor

Cadet Promotion

Very well done to Cadet Eleanor from TS Galloway who was promoted to the rank of Cadet 1st Class by the Commanding Officer Maj (SCC) Samantha Davis, RMR on Tuesday evening.

PO Lord, Unit Training Officer stated, "Cadet 1st Eleanor is a very valued member of the ships company. A strong team player and a very cohesive force within her peer group. Cdt 1st Eleanor has matured considerably during her time in her present rank and I have no doubt we will see Cdt 1st Eleanor putting into action what she has learned throughout her Sea Cadets journey and aspiring even further. It's been a pleasure to watch all of the cadets transition back into unit life since returning from lockdown."

BZ Cdt 1st Eleanor!

Preston Royal Marine Cadets attend Gibraltar...

Royal Marine Cadets from Preston Sea Cadets attended Altcar training camp on Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th December 2015 to be assessed take part in a selection weekend to represent Bravo company for the Gibraltar Cup competition which will take place at Commando Training centre Lympstone in March 2016.

The detachment entered the selection weekend in 2014 and came fourth in the company. A lot of hard work by the Royal Marine cadets and staff meant that all were much better prepared and equipped for this years selection weekend and resulted in the detachment coming second in the company.

Sgt Dowd, Detachment commander stated "This was a great effort by all those that took part and those that helped us in a support capacity. I hope that we are again asked to compete in the selection weekend next year and that the detachment continues to build on its success resulting in us being selected to represent Bravo Company at Commndo Training centre Lympstone"
