We at The Trafalgar Way have long been proud to have some great connections to the Sea Cadets. We have all of the cadet units along the way listed on our map too!
But this got us thinking! How many Sea Cadet units are named after ships which served at Trafalgar? We've compile a handy little list below!
Named for Medway SCC
TS Temeraire - Medway SCC
Temeraire is also of course the name of a Royal Navy shore establishment in Portsmouth!
SCC units in Clyde and Liverpool
Shore establishment in Faslane
A shore establishment for Royal Naval officer training
Canadian SCC Windsor
SCC unit in Methil
Royal Sovereign (assuming Sovereign)
SCC Unit in Barrow
SCC Units in Bideford and Wallasey
SCC Unit in Farnham
SCC Unit in Hertford & Ware an SCC Greenwich
SCC Units in Newhaven and Seaford
SCC Units in Aberystwyth and West Ham
SCC Unit in Mansfield
SCC Unit in Oxford
SCC Unit in Bournemouth
What about the other ships?
Unfortunately, a few ships don't have any ties, but maybe these can be units for the future as the Corps expands!
And of course Pickle!
