Hillarys Navy cadets know the drill

HILLARYS Navy cadets showed off their skills to national representatives during their annual inspection.

Despite the stormy conditions, more than 40 cadets from the Training Ship Marmion unit demonstrated what they had been practising for several months, including marching, drumming, man overboard recovery and various water activities.

HMAS Stirling Commanding Officer Brian Delamont and Australian Navy Cadets’ WA Flotilla Commander Peter Jones ran the inspection, which sees the unit compete for best in the State.

Unit support volunteer Emma McIndoe said the cadets gave an excellent performance.

“The inspection covers the presentation of the staff, grounds and building, including admin, stores and record keeping, plus adhering to all aspects of the safety codes.

If selected as a finalist, the unit will have a second inspection later this year.
