We are incredibly proud to announce that we have been awarded the Thomas Gray Memorial Trophy, for 2023

“The Thomas Gray Memorial Trophy is awarded to the unit who are the runners up to the Canada Trophy, the unit which is considered to have attained the second highest standard of all round efficiency in the previous year.”

Milton Keynes Sea Cadets & Royal Marines Cadets is one of the best Sea Cadet units in the country, for the second year in succession.

With a phenomenal 3417 boating hours logged over the year, alongside competing at, and medalling, in national Sea Cadet events such as drill, rowing, paddlesports, & windsurfing.

We would very much like to thank all our cadets, staff volunteers, trustees, our Parents & Supporters Association, and not forgetting their families for their incredible hard work, commitment and support. We’ve also been supported by a number of other units across Southern Area, our success is very much a team effort.

We would also like to congratulation our friends and fellow Southern Area Sea Cadets National Award recipients, Wessex District Sea Cadets who won the Navy League Trophy., and of course congratulations also to our friends Twickenham Sea Cadets who were the winners of the Canada Trophy.

“This is the first time in our history we have received this prestigious award and we are immensely proud to achieve such an accolade! I am immensely proud of our unit and looking forward to another busy year, building on our success from 2022.”
