Fortune cadets ship shape at Annual Review
Sea Cadets mark the end of another training year
Sea Cadets of RCSCC 290 Sir Humphrey Gilbert, Fortune, impressed their leaders and the inspecting party at their 35th annual ceremonial review May 12 at the Lake Academy gym.
The Cadets demonstrated timing and precision in the junior and senior drill maneuvers. The audience got to witness the pageantry of the cadet movement with emphasis on colour and music in a combined effort of the band, guard and the colour party.
Reviewing officer Fortune Mayor Charles Penwell was impressed.
“It is an honour and privilege to be your reviewing officer this year. The display you put on this afternoon was absolutely fantastic,” he told the cadets in his speech at the ceremony.
Penwell congratulated Commanding Officer Lt (N) Carrie George and her fellow officers for providing the training in leadership skills and development, which he described as ‘second to none in the province’.
George thanked the Cadets, saying, “it takes a lot of dedication and hard work to make a successful year, and you have done it.”
