Reading Sea Cadets, UK
The first Sea Cadet unit was established in 1854 at Whitstable in Kent, created
by communities wanting to give young people instruction on a naval theme.
Traditionally old seafarers provided training while local businessmen funded
the Unit Headquarters.
The tradition of community - based Sea Cadet Units continues today with 400
across the UK each with charitable status enabling them to raise funds to meet
their running costs. All Units are members of the Sea Cadet Corps and are
governed by the national charity MSSC - the Marine Society & Sea Cadets.
Sea Cadet units enjoy partnership with the Royal Navy under a Memorandum of
Understanding (MOU) and receive corporate support from commercial shipping
companies and the Maritime sector. Their core purpose is to celebrate Britain's
maritime heritage and contribute to its future development by supporting young
people as Sea Cadets.
