MARYSTOWN, NL — The sun has set on another training year for the cadets of RCSCC 121 Mary Rose. 

They held their 64th annual ceremonial review on June 3.

Cadets demonstrated their knowledge on several aspects of the cadets activities such as sailing, drill team and colour party.

The Commanding Officer's award went to Nathan Lee and Bethany Young. Pictured left to right are Lee, Young and CO Roxanne Breon.

The members also demonstrated their marksmanship skills during a live display, and the band showed off their talents performing several Newfoundland favorites such as The Islander, Mussels in the Corner and I’se da By’.

Some of the major awards presented during the ACR included the Lord Strathcona Trust Medal, which was present to cadet Christian Barnes. This is the highest award that can be earned by a cadet in any Cadet program in Canada.

Cadet Shauna Lambe points out some of the key points on the Marksmanship display to reviewing officer Albert Dober during the ACR.
