LOCHABER sea cadets held their an­nual award cer­e­mony ear­lier this month and there were some big win­ners.

Gre­gor Lin­field was awarded best cadet and most boat­ing hours; cadet of the year went to Cameron Camp­bell; the com­mu­nity ac­tion tro­phy was awarded to Deeann Strachan, and Sarah Harper took home ju­nior cadet of the year.

A num­ber of medals were handed to the com­peti­tors in the Com­mando speed march at the cer­e­mony on Fe­bru­ary 9 and qual­i­fi­ca­tion badges were also given to Ryan Watch­man, Andrew Dib­s­dale, Cameron Camp­bell and Shan­non MacCal­lum.

A spokesper­son for the sea cadets said: ‘ We are grate­ful to Lieu­tenant Com­man­der Hamish Loudon MBE who came along and pre­sented the awards.

‘ We’d also like to take this op­por­tu­nity to re­peat our ap­peal for some ladies over 18 years of age to join us as in­struc­tors. No ex­pe­ri­ence of the mil­i­tary or the sea is re­quired as full train­ing will be pro­vided.

‘ We’re also look­ing for a new chair­man.

The per­son should have some ex­pe­ri­ence of work­ing with vol­un­teers on a com­mit­tee.’
