Sea Cadets win regional drill competition
group of Burnham-On-Sea Sea Cadets has plenty of reasons to smile
after winning a leading regional drill
competition at the weekend.
their success in 2011, when Burnham's unit, TS Dulverton, lifted
the National Drill trophy in the Colour Party competition, they
are this year entered into the larger, unarmed drill competition.
Sunday, they successfully took part in the Somerset and Dorset
district level competition at RNAS Yeovilton.
Officer Bob Silverthorne Lt (SCC) RNR told Burnham-On-Sea.com:
"The nerve of the cadets held strong and not only did they
win the overall competition section but they also swept the board,
winning best dressed cadets."
cadets were OC Steph Yates Winner, POC Corey Hayes, OC
Imogen Howard and Cdt Timon Massarella Joint runner-up,
while the best squad commander was POC Matt Tutton.
South West Area competition, to be held at HMS Raleigh in Plymouth
next month, is a tall order at the first attempt, but is a certainly
a challenge that the cadets and staff of TS Dulverton are prepared
to accept and, whatever the outcome, they will continue to bring
pride to our unit."
