Barry Sea Cadets Hold Royal Navy Parade

Barry Sea Cadets have held their Royal Navy Parade Inspection at St Nicholas Church in Barry.

The evening comprised of a Formal Colours Parade and prayers, demonstrations by the cadets, followed by a Sunset Ceremony and presentations. The inspecting officer was Commander Nigel Morton RN, the Area Officer for the South West.

The Cadets were also visited by Vale MP Alun Cairns, who joined in as they carried out evolutions.

During the Parade, the Cadets handed out various awards, promotions and recognition, including to Charlie Wilson for 12 years of service to the Sea Cadets.

Mr Cairns commented on the evening, “It was great to catch up with Barry Sea Cadets. I pay tribute to the new team, including CO Jeff Davies and Chairman David Williams on the work that they do. The Sea Cadets play an active role in teaching young people vital skills such as first aid, teamwork and leadership, and it’s a pleasure to support them.”
