Romsey Sea Cadets recently completed its annual Unit Review and a biennial Royal Naval Parade (RNP). The aim of the Unit Review process of inspections is to achieve the highest reasonable standards of safety and management in Sea Cadets units.
On 26th March 2015, the Unit had the pleasure of welcoming inspecting Officer Commander John Greene RN (Retd), Along with the inspection of divisions, family and friends were treated to evolutions by cadets which showed the Units skills and training over the past year.
The inspecting Officer took the time to speak to each and every cadet during the inspection and we found him to be highly motivational and encouraging.
It can only be summed up by comments from the cadets themselves:
It was the evening of our bi-annual RNP (Royal Naval Parade), an exciting night with a brilliant knotting competition and a friendly atmosphere from the very start.
We had a great time demonstrating what we do best.
Some cadets wished they could “do it all over again”.
Despite the inspection (eek) being nail bitingly challenging, yet enjoyable, we really pulled it out of the bag.
We had a great time; pure fun, especially when we took the Officer on a tour of the unit.
