Sea Cadets clinch national drill competition win
Members of Burnham's Sea Cadets were celebrating on Saturday (May
7th) after winning a national drill competition.
Sea Cadet Unit, TS Dulverton, competed against units from across
the country at the National Drill Competition at HMS Raleigh,
"It is the first time the Burnham Unit has ever won a national
competition of any description, so it is a huge achievement,"
spokesman Matt Harkness told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
"Big congratulations go to the Cadets involved, Leading
Cadets Wookey, Hayes and Tutton, plus Ordinary Cadet Astill and
"They had to parade the Sea Cadet 'Colour' (a flag), using
a set routine that they have had to learn in a short space of
time as they have only just taken charge of a new type of rifle."
