Royal engagement for POC Peter

Royal engagement for POC Peter

We’re all immensely proud of POC Peter who accompanied the Lord-Lieutenant of Berkshire Mr James Puxley as he escorted Her Majesty the Queen on her tour of The Lexicon, Bracknell.

This was Peter’s first engagement since his recent inauguration as one of The Lord Lieutenant’s cadets for Berkshire District. He is one of four cadets who will accompany Mr Puxley during events in the coming year.

Peter is offshore at the moment, so we haven’t been able to ask him what Her Majesty said to him – we look forward to finding out on his return!

We will be welcoming Mr Puxley as our guest of honour at our recommissioning ceremony for TS Jervis Bay on Friday 7 December.

Excellent performances at District Drill & Piping

Excellent performances at District Drill & Piping

A fantastic day was had by all at the Berkshire District Drill and Piping competition.

The unarmed squad were excellent - we have never seen them perform so well. Unfortunately, they were pipped to the post, but they will be a force to be reckoned with next year.

The piping team did brilliantly and came out on top to win the trophy back from Maidenhead. Leading cadet Peter took first place individual and Cadet Zac surprised himself to take second place!

For a team who only came together four weeks ago, we couldn’t be prouder.

The marines put on a good performance and will also be going to the area. Well done for pulling it out of the bag!

Well done to all! You have done the Unit proud and we could not be happier with all of your performances.

Bravo Zulu!

A very big thank you to Co-op Members who helped raise an incredible £2,808.96 for Reading Sea Cadets.
