Cadets from Inverness Sea Cadets TS Briton joined HRFCA’s Cadet Presentation Team organisers Sarah Rawlings and Richard Paterson at the Highland Military Tattoo for what was to be another outstanding presentation on the Cadet Experience to a large audience including a number of VIPs. These included Lord Lieutenants, Rear Admiral John Weale OBE, Brigadier Gary Deakin CBE and Air Vice Marshal Ross Paterson CB OBE.
The Inverness Sea Cadets were founded in 1938 and were based in Central school, and then moved to where Cromwell’s Citadel had been, which gave the unit the name TS Citadel. In the late 50s BP wanted to expand their small fuel depot in the area and the Cadets were asked to relocate. They were given buildings and land at Kessock Farm on the Beauly Firth, where they remain today. After the move the unit then became TS Briton, named after the training ship that had been moored in Inverness Harbour for some time.
Their appearance at the Highland Tattoo demonstrated just how confident and well-trained the Sea Cadets from Briton are – clearly the audience enjoyed the presentation and had plenty of questions for the Cadets.
