CEREMONIAL AND PARADE
The Cadets participate in a number of National Ceremonial parades, the most notable being the Queen's Birthday Parade and the Remembrance Day Parade. The Cadets have taken official part in many visits of the Royal Family over the years. Such parades are regarded as important occasions to demonstrate the results of their training to the public and hence every effort goes into instilling the desire to dress and drill smartly, and be proud of the uniform they wear.
BERMUDA SEA CADETS
The Corps consist of three Training Ship (TS) Corps. The first Unit, T.S. Bermuda was established in Hamilton in 1966. T.S. Venture was established on Ireland Island in 1969 and T.S. Admiral Somers was founded in
St. George's in 1973. The Bermuda Sea Cadet Association supports
these Units financially in part.
Each Unit is required to have a Unit Management Committee and it is the committee’s responsibility to raise funds for general expenses i.e. rent and utilities. Unit Committees consist of Parents, Guardians and Friends.
The primary objective of the Sea Cadet organization in Bermuda is to help boys and girls between the ages 9 1/2 and 18, acquire a mature sense of responsibility and self discipline. Encouraging also the qualities that lead to self reliance and providing them with training which will facilitate, if they desire, their entry into local nautical services. The most common example are boat design and building, communications, ferry operations, charter and tour boat operations, the fishing industry , fishery protection services and Police marine services.
The Commander of the Bermuda Sea Cadets Corps and the Bermuda Sea Cadet Council regulates the Corps.
