Trafalgar Day Parade 2013

Trafalgar day parade is a special day for sea cadets in England.  It is the day we remember the Royal Navy’s most famous victory.  With the French under Napoleon about to invade it was vital the royal navy won the battle of Trafalgar, Lord Nelson, who sadly died after he was killed by a gun shot from a French sniper, led the British fleet to victory.

The rest of the group marched behind the Marine Cadets from Scarborough from St Peters Church to the Council Offices.  The parade was inspected by Commodore P Sutermeister in front of the petty officers (P.O.’S) and the chiefs.  Over 120 Cadets united together to make a very good day.
