THE T S Dulverton Sea Cadets based in Burnham have scooped a national award for the second year in a row.

Last year the unit won the colour party section of the drill and ceremonial competitions, designed for smaller units, and became national champions. And last month at the naval base in Plymouth, the cadets entered a 13 strong unarmed drill squad and won the national competition again.

To win the national competition for two consecutive years in two different disciplines is a huge achievement for the unit and shows the commitment of staff and cadets who have worked extremely hard to reach such a high standard in their routines.
