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.”
