A Scarborough Sea Cadet was named as the Navy Board Cadet for Eastern Area 2017 at this year’s Area Conference.
Leading Cadet Brandon Palmer was of the very few hand-picked to represent the organisation.
Navy Board Cadets are selected from each area to represent the Sea Cadets at many different events throughout their 12-month tour of duty. Their duties include meeting with the head of the Royal Navy (First Sea Lord), the Navy Board, and being a voice for the organisation at meetings.
A spokesman said: “Leading Cadet Palmer joined TS Scarborough at 13 and has thrown himself into everything the unit to offer.
“His exceptional attitude towards his peers, seniors and being a Leading Cadet has been recognised with this appointment.”
