MILFORD Haven Cadets showed they are a force to be reckoned with, after a number of successes at the annual west Wales district Drill and Piping competition in Swansea.

The unit entered a range of competitions, showing off their neat uniforms and drill displays for the judges.

After beating off fierce competition, Milford Haven Sea Cadets were announced as the winning colour party and piping team, with Leading Cadet Rhys named winning individual piper, and Able Cadet Dylan named runner-up.

Royal Marines Cadets Guard also took the trophy for the first time after being announced as winners.

The Junior Sea Cadets entered the individual piping, and Leading Junior Cadet Leah came runner-up, with the team also coming runner-up in the Unarmed Junior Drill section.

Lieutenant (SCC) William Elliott RNR, Commanding Officer, said: “I was over the moon to see that the cadets are keeping the high standards of drill and dress that we have instilled over the years and are also improving year on year.

"They also showed that Milford Haven is a force to be reckoned with in west Wales District, in particular with special congratulations to my Royal Marines Cadet detachment who took the trophy during their first ever entry.

"A brilliant team of adults and cadets.

"Good luck to the winning teams, who are off to represent west Wales district and 5 Troop at the area competition in Plymouth next month.”
