As the month of February concludes, we look at the achivement of our cadets who are embarking on new adventures and facing new challenges. The largest one being the reintroduction of competitions, starting with the Troop Drill competition!
1 Troop and 2 Troop combined their efforts to run their Troop Drill competition together! Sutton Coldfield Royal Marines Cadets Detachement came out on top in the Troop Drill competition, bringing home the Gold. They took 2nd place in the Company drill competition, holding their heads high as they make our Unit, and themselves, proud.
The unit also returned to its qualification strengths, delivering Marine Engineering and Meterology as a joint MACT across a weekend. Cadets gained Basic Marine Engineering qualifications and completed their Meterology Proficency badge whilst making unit-based memories.
Our cadets have also started to go further a-field, with cadets returning to District, Area and National courses, gaining qualifications and improving their cadet experience.
