TS Marmion Leading Seaman Bronwyn Crawcour received her award at Anzac House on January 28, along with a prize of a return trip for the Anzac Day service at the National War Memorial.
The cadet unit had nominated her and two of her peers – Leading Seaman Toby Young and former cadet Charlie Ward – for the award.
They were tested last year on their dress and bearing, first aid theory and practical assessments and general knowledge. They also had to give a five-minute presentation on their interpretation of the “Spirit of Anzac”.
Bronwyn has enrolled at ECU to study paramedicine and hopes to join the Royal Australian Navy in the future.
On the same night, commanding officer Sub-lieutenant Clare McCaskie accepted the perpetual shield for the unit efficiency award for 2015, which is awarded to the best Australian Naval Cadet Unit within WA.
The TS Marmion cadet unit is open to people aged 13 to 20.
