What a way to spend a Sunday!
Cadets from across South Yorkshire and Eastern Area assembled in Barkers Pool on Sunday (15th October) as to what tuned out to be the biggest Sea Cadet parade the city has seen for over 10 years.
This parade is in commemoration of the Battle of Trafalgar which took place on the 21st of October 1805. It was fought off the cape of Trafalgar on the south coast of Spain during the Napoleonic Wars. This is one of Brittan's most historic battles and every year Sea Cadets up and down the country come together to parade and remember it.
In attendance was the duty Lord Lieutenant of South Yorkshire, Lieutenant Colonel Robert McPherson MBE, The High Sheriff of South Yorkshire, Professor Jaydip Ray, along with senior staff officers, parents, family and friends and the public.
Throughout the parade, Scarborough Sea Cadet band led the way playing a selection of tunes and making the event extra special.
