The Sea Cadets Corps
The Sea Cadets Corps is not a pre-service organisation for the Royal Navy; like many people believe nor are they a Para-military organisation for any of the armed services.
Some of them do however go on to join the Royal Navy or become a Royal Marine Commando.
The young Cadets are a voluntary youth organisation and they are a registered charity.
Their aim is to offer young people a sense of pride with a sense of values of the highest traditions of the Royal Navy.
