On May 14, Navy League Cadet Corps (NLCC) 119 Vick­ers Vimy of Bri­gus, held its 37th an­nual in­spec­tion.

An ex­cel­lent per­for­mance was dis­played by all cadets, who range in age from nine to 12 years-of-age.

The in­spec­tion en­tailed dis­plays of ci­ti­zen­ship, train­ing, cadet Olympics and a sun­set cer­e­mony.

This year, Vick­ers Vimy re­ceived two Na­tional Award of Ex­cel­lence medals and one provin­cial Cadet of the Year medal for New­found­land and Labrador.

Chief Petty Of­fi­cer First Class Ed­ward Ryan, who is the corps coxswain, re­ceived both top awards.

Chief Petty Of­fi­cer Sec­ond Class Zachary Trick­ett, who is the corps guard com­man­der, was the sec­ond re­cip­i­ent of the Na­tional Award of Ex­cel­lence.

Clay­ton Bai­ley, pres­i­dent of the Navy League cadets, New­found­land and Labrador Di­vi­sion, and Ber­nadette Trick­ett, past-pres­i­dent and grand­mother to Zachary Trick­ett, pre­sented these awards.

Con­grat­u­la­tions to the cadets, of­fi­cers, civil­ian in­struc­tors and sea cadet in­struc­tors of NLCC 119 Vick­ers Vimy for yet an­other won­der­ful year.

Also a farewell to the se­nior cadets who are go­ing to ex­tend their train­ing to the sea cadet pro­gram in Septem­ber, and we wel­come aboard to our corps, the se­nior and ju­nior cadets and also the new re­cruits.
